Milwaukee Bucks' guard Pat Connaughton has praised his teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo over his leadership skills.
The Milwaukee Bucks are on their way to be the best regular-season team for the second year in a row. Led by 2019 MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, they are one of the favorites to win the NBA title.
In an interview with The JJ Redick Podcast, Connaughton said:
“From what I’ve seen over the last two years, he’s (Giannis Antetokounmpo) getting to the point now where his voice is becoming heard often. But what he’s always done really well is lead by example.
"When the best player on your team is doing that, especially on a championship team, everybody else falls in that line. He has relationships, friendships, discussions with every guy on the team and everybody wants to play for him.”
He also added on Giannis' work ethic:
“He works as if he’s a second-round role player, but his talent is that of an MVP, championship-caliber teammate. So I think it is what has really started to build the culture of the Milwaukee Bucks as we’ve gotten better.”
