Giannis becomes 1st player ever to finish top 20 in 5 major categories
His name rarely comes up in MVP talks, but few players have enjoyed a better season than Giannis Antetokounmpo.
With the regular season in the books, The Greek Freak is officially the first player in NBA history to finish a season in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.
The Milwaukee Bucks forward has taken his game to a new level in 2016-17, averaging 22.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks, and 1.6 steals on 52.2 percent shooting.
Even after Jabari Parker was ruled out for the season with a torn ACL, the Bucks continued to climb in the Eastern standings, finishing sixth in the conference thanks in large part to the play of Antetokounmpo.
With the Bucks set to face the Toronto Raptors in the first round of this year's postseason, the fourth-year forward will once again have the opportunity to show why his name should be mentioned among the game's elite.
