Giannis Antetokounmpo let the basketball world know there isn’t a single player who can stop him without help from their teammates after he led the Milwaukee Bucks to a 106-97 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.

Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel noted Antetokounmpo was asked if he enjoyed being matched up with Thaddeus Young in the game because some believe the Pacers forward is capable of containing him, and he said the following:

“Oh, come on man. Thaddeus Young, he’s a great guy, first of all. Amazing player, amazing teammate, plays hard. At the end of the day, I’m not trying to sound arrogant and cocky because that’s not who I am, but I don’t think there’s one guy that can stop me. It’s going to be a whole team effort. They’ve got to load, they’ve got to double-team me. When I get to the paint, three guys swarm at me. That’s the only way. They’ve got to all work together to stop me from making plays – not getting points, from making plays. But he’s a great defensive guy.”
