He said that the other four are not in any particular order and went on to say the names of LeBron, Giannis, and Embiid. He then said that he’s confused with that number five spot amongst Curry, Jokic, and Luka. He went on to say “We’re lucky he’s(Luka) not athletic……….I’m going to say, Luka. I feel like Steph is just a little bit below.”
