We enter the final stretch, and this is where the news takes advantage, of course without detracting from what was done by the players who are before the first place on the list. From the hand of the study prepared by the benchmark in NBA betting Betway we can enter from another prism in the history of some of the best players who have passed through the league.

  1. Giannis Antetokounmpo. Another of the most versatile players who can occupy the positions of forward or pivot, the Greek is a true phenomenon. He is the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in the league in each of the five major categories in a regular season.

Other data to take into account is that he is the third player to win both awards in the same season, the MVP and the DPOY, after Michael Jordan and Hakeen Olajuwon; and, in addition, he is the second player to achieve two consecutive 40-10 in the NBA finals, along with Shaquille O’Neal.

Last season, he surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 14,211 points, becoming the leading scorer in Milwaukee franchise history. For all this and more, Giannis is among the most popular MVPs (2019 and 2020) with a 17.00% positive sentiment among fans. Incidentally, the Milwaukee Bucks forward was also named NBA Finals MVP in 2021 after leading his team to their first title in 50 years.

  1. Kobe Bryant. After the incredible duo that he starred in with Shaq in Los Angeles, The Black Mamba became an icon for the Los Angeles team. He owns five NBA championships, and is considered one of the greatest players of all time. He got the MVP award in 2008, after a great season that he could not crown with the championship.

He is the second player with the most points scored in a game, with 81, behind the 100 scored by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962. After his retirement, the Lakers retired their jerseys with numbers 8 and 24, being the first time in history in the NBA for this to happen, as the report released by the Betway Insider Blog adds.

Unfortunately, his death came early and, despite this, he remains one of the most beloved basketball stars, with 17.80% positive feelings and an account of more than 20.9 million followers.

  1. Allen Iverson. It was in 2001 when he got his season MVP, although he couldn’t get the title by losing to Phil Jackson’s Lakers. That season was the most successful of his career, and he holds one of the rookie records in NBA history, averaging 40 points per game in his first season. His average approval rating is 23.90%, and he is one of the most recognized shooting guards by fans of burst sports.

He has just over 11 million followers on IG, but his positive references keep him in the memory of NBA fans, and everything indicates that it will be so for a long time.
