Who to watch - Giannis Antetokounmpo

The fans say he should be this year's MVP

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been described as "just scratching the surface of who he can be some day - the best player in the world."

At 6'11", Antetokounmpo seems built for basketball. He started playing in his native Greece in 2007 and by 2009, he was playing competitively. He signed with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2013. During the 2015–16 season, he became the Bucks' primary playmaker. In 2016–17, he led the Bucks in all five major statistical categories and became the first player in NBA history to finish a regular season in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. He signed a four year contract extension with the Bucks in 2016.

Many fans (and teammates) call him "Greek Freak" but for proper pronunciation, Sugar&Sports loves the following video made by Nike:
