In a recent interview, the Bucks star and two-time MVP stated that he intends to train with famous former Rockets center Hakeem Olajuwon in Houston shortly, but stated why he does not work out with any current NBA players.

In the recent published article by Sports Illustrated, “I always compete against them, so when I am on the court, I want to go as hard as I can,” the Bucks star and two-time MVP stated on the 48 Minutes podcast. Antetokounmpo went on to say that training with and being acquainted with active players “takes off his edge” when he plays against them during the season.

Olajuwon is only the third former player with whom the two-time MVP has worked out. Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant were the first two.

Even if you’re a former player, it doesn’t appear that most veterans would meet the two-time MVP’s standards as a training partner if he’s only interested in working out with first-ballot Hall of Famers.

The exchange between the two players has ignited debate among fans and produced social media interest.
