Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo says being in the NBA feels like he’s ‘always dreaming’

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks superstar swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo says being in the NBA feels like he’s “always dreaming” and hopes he never wakes up from the dream.

Antetokounmpo is one of the best players in the NBA and one of the front runners to win the MVP award this season.

When Milwaukee drafted Giannis Antetokounmpo with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, he was just a skinny kid from Greece who fans in America didn’t really know too much about.

Giannis averaged 6.8 points during his rookie season, and while he flashed his athleticism from time to time, no one really thought he was going to be a superstar in the league.

Five years later, Antetokounmpo is one of the most feared players in the NBA and has one of the best nicknames: The Greek Freak. The Bucks have the top record in the league right now and Antetokounmpo is the main reason why.

Giannis is averaging 27.2 points, 12.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game this season and shooting 58.1 percent from the field.

The crazy part is Antetokounmpo can’t even shoot the 3-ball that well yet, as he’s only shooting 22.3 percent from beyond the arc this season. And yet, Giannis is still dominating the NBA.

Just imagine how lethal he’s going to be once he develops a perimeter shot.
