The debate about the best player in the NBA is not actually a debate for the NBA Today panel.

Giannis Antetokounmpo topping ESPN’s NBArank for 2022-23 was presented with Kendrick Perkins chipping in his view on the list first.

“In my opinion, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been the best player in the league for the last three years,” was his firm stand, “If you are starting a team today and you can ask all 30 GMs who they are taking #1, you are taking Giannis.”

The NBA Today panel unanimously agreed. Besides confirming Giannis on the top, they also weighed in on how fluid the situation is for the players ranking below the Milwaukee Bucks superstar, including second-placed Nikola Jokic and third-placed Luka Doncic.

Three European players highlighting ESPN’s annual NBArank is not a stretch, taking into account the playing and leadership qualities of Antetokounmpo, Jokic, and Doncic.
