Giannis Antetokounmpo’s insane Bucks record that even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar failed to reach
By the time he leaves the Milwaukee Bucks, whenever that may be, Giannis Antetokounmpo will have his name all over the franchise’s all-time statistical leaderboard. In many areas, he’ll be at or very close to the top.
Antetokounmpo’s most recent ascent up the leaderboard came in the assist column, as he passed Sidney Moncrief to become second in career assists in Milwaukee history during tonight’s game against the Washington Wizards.
Giannis now sits 2nd on the Bucks All-Time Assist Leaders list passing @sidneymoncrief_.

Paul Pressey is currently in first place on the Bucks’ all-time assists leaderboard with 3,272 dimes. Should Antetokounmpo get at least 350 assists a season moving forward, he’ll pass Pressey sometime during next season. Being so tall and strong makes the feat all the more impressive, as Giannis has perfectly blended crafty and effective playmaking with a physically overpowering scoring repertoire.
Currently, Antetokounmpo is first in Bucks history in triple-doubles. He currently has 25, which more than triples the second-place mark of eight, set by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Giannis is second in points, rebounds and free throws, fourth in field goal percentage and seventh in steals. With a title already delivered to Milwaukee, there’s a very strong argument for Antetokounmpo to be the best Buck in history.
Milwaukee’s title defense has not been going to plan so far as several key players, including Giannis’ co-star Khris Middleton, are sidelined for various reasons. The Bucks are currently 4-5.
