Giannis Antetokounmpo becomes 5th player in NBA history to lead team in all 5 major stat categories
Giannis Antetokounmpo has made the strides most critics thought he would make this season, making himself not only the Milwaukee Bucks‘ franchise player, but the undisputed leader of the team at both ends of the floor as well.
His dominance on the floor has carried on so evidently, that he leads the Bucks in every one of the five major statistical categories this season, becoming only the fifth NBA player to do so, according to All The Bucks News & Stats.
The Greek Freak is putting up 23.1 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.9 blocks per game — all career highs despite only playing 0.3 minutes more per game.
Antetokounmpo’s skill set is unparalleled, and at 22 years of age, the 6-foot-11 hybrid forward has so much untapped potential waiting to be displayed.
His all-around package has been developing as well, shooting career-high marks from the field and from the free-throw line — making his only visible weakness the three-point line.
The Bucks talisman was a mere 27.2 percent from deep this season, while only making 49 treys through 79 games this season.
If he can keep up these monster numbers and add a respectful three-point shot to add to his already-versatile arsenal, it won’t take long until Giannis Antetokounmpo takes the East by storm and become the next player to get serious MVP consideration.
