Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is starting to make a case for himself as the best player in the league. He's having a great year so far, averaging 27.0 points, 12.6 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. He's the front-runner to win league MVP, he was captain of an All-Star team, and he has led the Milwaukee Bucks to the best record in the NBA so far.

Even amid this impressive season for The Greek Freak, it seems he's not getting a ton of attention from the media, who seem to be more focused on significant underachieving teams like the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. But Giannis doesn't mind not attracting too much attention, saying it allows him to be more focused on the task of helping the Bucks win this season:

“I love it. It’s amazing that I can just work in silence. I’m a low-profile guy. I know that being good, having a great team, and winning in this league (means) that attention comes with it, but I’d rather quiet days like this.”

He also gave his advice to the younger generation who tends to focus more on getting media exposure than their careers as basketball players:

“I’m not trying to criticize nobody; everybody can do whatever they want to do. But I see a lot of young players coming out who think that by putting your name in the media you’re going to get the exposure. But at the end of the day, it’s not about the media. If you don’t get it done on the court, it’s not going to get done with media. Like, if I don’t come out tomorrow and try to kick some ass and try to get a win and help my team, media is not going to do that for me. I try to focus on my job, and to finish the season strong, and not try to do (other stuff).”

Giannis has a point. He has only been in the league for six years, but he's already being considered as the best player in the league. He doesn't spark controversy by saying bad things to anyone. He'd rather let his game do the talking, and during losses, he remains humble.

That type of focus is mainly the reason why he's having a phenomenal year.
