It’s Giannis Antetokounmpo Day in Milwaukee, but the reigning MVP told his adoring fans he doesn’t want them dwelling on his past accomplishments.

The Milwaukee Bucks held a special ceremony Sunday at Fiserv Forum to honor Giannis’ MVP award. Fans came out in droves to cheer Antetokounmpo on.

However, when Giannis stepped onto the stage, he sent a message to the large crowd, and the rest of the NBA, that indicates he is nowhere near satisfied with last year’s accomplishment.

This 24-year-old superstar clearly has a good head on his shoulders. And to his point about next year, Giannis is already heavily favored to win back-to-back MVP awards.
