Former NBA player Stephen Jackson likened Greek Freak with former LA Lakers linchpin Shaquille O’Neal. O’Neal is also regarded as one of the best players in the NBA and he made a potent duo with Kobe Bryant.

Speaking on NBA Sundays, Jackson said, ​​”The best way to guard Giannis is to send him to the free-throw line. And I think that’s not even in the scout report no more because he’s making his free throws. I think a lot of people compare him to Shaq for his dominance because he is the most dominant player we’ve seen since Shaq.”

“His energy, the way he plays, and what makes him more dominant, he plays harder than anybody on the court. He’s very seldom, you have the MVP playing the hardest on the court. That separates Giannis, and that’s why he’s the most dominant player we’ve seen.”
