Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t simply having a great season. He’s on the verge of making NBA history.
The Greek Freak currently ranks in the top-20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. The list of people who have done that in a season is not a long one. In fact, the list doesn’t exist.
Giannis Antetokounmpo vying to be first player in NBA history to finish in top 20 in total PTS, REB, AST, STL, & BLK. Currently 20th in AST.

That’s pretty amazing.
The scary thing about Antetokounmpo is that his offensive game is still evolving. If Antetokounmpo develops a more consistent outside shot, he’ll be even better and harder to stop. That’s a frightening reality for teams around the NBA.
Until then, it speaks to the overall skill of the player that, even when he’s not completely developed, he can do things never before done in the Association.
