Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks might have lost the series but he gave it his all. We take a closer look at the Greek Freak’s numbers. 

History is written by victors but great warriors often leave their marks. Giannis Antetokounmpo did the same. The first player ever to put up 200 points, 100 rebounds, and 50 assists in a playoff series.

Neither LeBron James nor Michael Jordan has done this. This remarkable stat line is a testament to how good the Greek Freak has been this whole series.

He lacked the help of his all-star teammate Khris Middleton, and sure there were plenty of defensive errors from the Bucks and an inability to make threes when it mattered.

Giannis stood up and rose to the challenge, only the gauntlet was too heavy for him to pick up.

Where do Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks go from here?

The Bucks have nothing to worry about. They just happened to face a team that was in form and they lacked their players.

They might have to make some adjustments this off-season, however, the team has a good core for a few more years.
Their superstar is here to stay and he is starting to kick into form.

As for Giannis, we might just be starting to see him blossom into the best player in the league. We reckon he holds that title already.

A lot of superstars and media personalities have already given him the crown and given his ridiculous performance these playoffs, we can be sure to see more of him in the postseasons to come.
