Giannis Antetokounmpo Wins Back-to-Back MVP Awards

With the NBA Awards season in full swing, today it was announced that the Milwaukee Bucks have a two-time winner of the Most Valuable Player award in Giannis Antetokounmpo.

It is his second consecutive win, joining a list that includes Michael Jordan, Moses Malone, LeBron James, Steph Curry, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Tim Duncan, and Steve Nash.

Not only that but he joins a super exclusive list of players that won the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year award in the same year. That list includes only Hakeem Olajuwon (1993-94) and Michael Jordan (1987-88).

The Bucks underachieved in the playoffs this season, but the organization is willing to spend to get Giannis a championship team before he leaves in free agency.

For now, Antetokounmpo remains the best player in the league and can still contend.
