Antetokounmpo...The ONLY Player in the NBA to Lead in FIVE Categories
Giannis Antetokounmpo is the only player in the NBA to lead his team in FIVE categories including points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.
There is no doubt that Giannis Antetokounmpo is the star of the Milwaukee Bucks. The statistics speak for themselves as Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks in not one, two, or three...but FIVE categories. He is the ONLY player in the NBA that leads his team in all five categories.
Antetokounmpo is averaging 23.4 points per game, 8.6 rebounds per game, 5.6 assists per game, 1.8 steals per game, and 2.1 blocks per game. If Antetokounmpo finishes the season averaging 20 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks per game he will be the first player in NBA history to do so. Karim Abdul Jabbar (1975-1976) and Larry Bird (1978-1979) came close to the milestone, but Abdul Jabbar just came up short on steals while Bird was just shy on blocks.
Today at 7:00 PM (EST) Antetokounmpo will find out if he will become the first Greek player to be voted for an NBA All Star game.
