LeBron James teamed up with Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and may have been teammates with Kyrie Irving had the 2013 NBA Draft gone differently.
At the time, Antetokounmpo, 27, was a relatively unknown prospect, and the Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett with the first overall choice.
Bennett is regarded as one of the most significant busts in NBA history. But Antetokounmpo has amassed the most honors in the league.
Milwaukee selected the Greek Freak 15th overall, one of the few clubs with Antetokounmpo on its radar.
The following summer, James, 37, returned to Cleveland, where he guided the franchise to its first-ever championship.
Antetokounmpo has previously declared that he wants to win Sixth Man of the Year towards the conclusion of his career by coming off the bench.
The Greek Freak has earned the following awards: Most Improved Player, Defensive Player of the Year. Back-to-back Most Valuable Player, Most Valuable Player of the All-Star Game, and Most Valuable Player of the Finals.
He has also acknowledged that his one regret in his career is not earning Rookie of the Year. Despite making the All-Rookie Second Team.
Antetokounmpo’s résumé is filled with accolades and obviously includes an NBA title.
The notion of him and James teaming up still has traction. But if Antetokounmpo, James, and Irving had joined forces in Cleveland, the NBA would likely look very different now.
