Antetokounmpo has been sensational throughout the season, leading the Bucks to the best record in the league. The team dominated the first two rounds of the postseason and even the first two games of the conference finals. However, the Raptors’ defense and experience was too much for them to overcome, as Milwaukee lost the next four games of the series.
The Greek Freak averaged 27 points, 13 rebounds, and six assists this season.
Bucks fans have witnessed the emergence of Giannis. From being a promising prospect back in 2013, he is now a bonafide superstar in the NBA. They know what the 24 year-old has been through to get to where he is now, so they know how to appreciate greatness when they see one.
As long as Giannis is in Milwaukee, the Bucks will be title contenders. He hasn’t reached his ultimate prime yet, and that’s something that people should remember. Once Antetokounmpo develops the weak points of his game, he will be more unstoppable.
For now, Giannis and the Bucks should use this offseason to regroup and improve their roster. They will have another opportunity at a championship run next season, and with the Greek Freak leading the way, expect Milwaukee to bounce back.
Losing in the conference finals after working so hard for an entire season; that’s a bitter pill to swallow for Giannis, but he understands that he can’t always win in the NBA. All he can do right now is get better.
His time will definitely come.
