Kobe issues ambitious challenge at Antetokounmpo's request

Giannis Antetokounmpo wanted a challenge from Kobe Bryant, and he certainly got one.

The Milwaukee Bucks forward was challenged by Bryant to take home an MVP award in a Sunday morning tweet.

Ambitious, certainly, but is it really all that far-fetched? Antetokounmpo is coming off a season that saw him average 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game, all while making some really incredible plays. He probably needs to go to another level — and his team improving a bit would help as well — but it’s hard to dispute that Antetokounmpo has the capability to put up an MVP-caliber season. Kobe certainly sees it.
