The Bucks once again have the best record in the NBA. Giannis could very well win his second straight MVP award.
Antetokounmpo came into Thursday averaging 30.1 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.8 assists. Those averages will go up after Thursday’s stellar performance.
Anytime you are mentioned with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, you are obviously doing something right. The Greek Freak figures to dominate the NBA for the next decade or so assuming he stays healthy.
Antetokounmpo is eager to lead the Bucks to the championship this season after what transpired in the 2019 playoffs. Milwaukee lost to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors in six games in the Eastern Conference Finals despite the fact they had a 2-0 lead in the series before the Canadian franchise won four games in a row.
