Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was named to the All-NBA Second Team on Thursday, marking the second consecutive season the ‘Greek Freak’ has received the honour.
Antetokounmpo, who played in his second consecutive NBA All-Star Game this season, finished as the Bucks’ leader in scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals to help guide his team to a second straight playoff berth.
With a scoring average of 26.9 points per game, Antetokounmpo became the highest scoring player in Bucks history since Kareem Abdul-Jabar averaged 30.0 points per game in 1974/1975 season.
While this is the second time Antetokounmpo has been named to the All-NBA Second Team, this is the fourth time in the 23-year-old’s young career that he has received an end-of-season team honour.
In addition to being named to the All-NBA Second Team last season, Antetokounmpo was also named to the NBA All-Defensive Team – adding to the NBA All-Rooke Second Team nod he received in 2014.
Antetokounmpo was joined on the 2018 edition of the All-NBA Second Team by LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio Spurs), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors), Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers) and Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder).
