Life is pretty good for Antetokounmpo at the moment. His Bucks have the best record in the NBA again, he could win his second straight MVP award, and he now is a proud father.
Antetokounmpo is one of the best basketball players in the world and figures to dominate the NBA for years to come. The Bucks star is averaging 30.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists on the season in 48 games while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 61.4 percent from the free-throw line.
The Bucks lost to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals in six games. Now that Kawhi Leonard is in the Western Conference, though, many believe Milwaukee has a great shot at winning the East this 2019-20 campaign.
Giannis Antetokounmpo will make $25,842,697 this season. If he doesn’t sign the supermax extension with the Bucks next summer, he would become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2021. Giannis has said multiple times he doesn’t like big-market cities and loves playing in Milwaukee, so fans are hoping their MVP stays in town for the rest of his NBA career.
