Giannis Antetokounmpo has had a monster season for Milwaukee this year.
For the past two to three years, I have highly criticized him for not being the leader he had the potential to be. This season, he has shown me and the rest of the critics that he is a 5-star-athlete. He has what it takes to lead a team to the best record in the NBA.
Giannis this season led the Milwaukee Bucks to a 60-22 record through the regular season. That’s the best record in franchise history since the 2001 season when the team finished 52-30 for the season. Giannis finally figured out how to get a great team together and have a successful regular season.
With the support of Kris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez,
Giannis has career highs all over the charts. He averaged 27.7 PPG through the regular season alongside 12.5 RPG as well. It appears that he grasped a new mindset this season, as he looked better both physically and mentally on the court.
It seems like it was only yesterday when Kobe Bryant challenged Giannis to win an MVP Award for the 2017-2018 season.
Although it took about a year to get going, Giannis finally received his recognition and has a nomination for the MVP award this offseason. Players and fans will have their eyes glued to the NBA Awards this year. We will get to see who will win the MVP Award between Giannis and Harden.
Both have had stellar seasons for their clubs.
But, I believe that Giannis is the NBA’s most valuable player based off of his consistency all season and leading his team to the best record in the NBA.
