antetokounmpo described the four-time all-star game mvp bryant as the "michael jordan of our generation."

"a guy that mentored me in the last few years of my career, a guy that was always there for me," antetokounmpo said. "in the regular season, the playoffs, a guy that told me that whenever i need something, i could just reach out to him, and he was literally always there. if i needed something, he would text me back, call me.
