2018 MVP. . .
It’s looking like Giannis Antetokounmpo is actually answering the Kobe Bryant challenge, in winning the 2018 MVP Award – but more so make his team viable contenders in the playoffs.
Friday night, the Milwaukee Bucks were on the road, for a national game against the San Antonio Spurs. Just days prior, the team made a major trade, landing point-guard Eric Bledsoe, in exchange for veteran big man Greg Monroe. Throughout the night, the Greek Freak poured in 28 points and 12 rebounds on the Spurs, including helping the team end their four-game losing slump.
With the arrival of Bledsoe, Giannis was able to take it easy tonight, while still making it look like he was over-exerting himself. At the moment, Antetokounmpo is leading the NBA in scoring at 31.9 points-per-game and is a lock by some to run away with the 2018 MVP Award.
Take a look at highlights from their 94-87 victory over the Spurs.
