Charlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum praised Giannis Antetokounmpo ahead of the NBA Paris Game on Friday (24/01).

“For his height, he is a unique player. What he is achieving is unbelievable. He has revolutionized the game a bit in his own way. He is efficient on the court, he is a pure basketball player.

Furthermore, he is improving his shooting, so he is going to become an unstoppable machine. So far, he is this year’s MVP for me,” Batum told reporters.

Batum and the Hornets will face Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks at the AccorHotels Arena.
