Antetokounmpo gets better and better. He’s averaging 26.5 points, 12.6 rebounds, nearly six assists, and more than both a steal and a block per game. Antetokounmpo is also attempting 2.3 threes per game this season. He’s only shooting it at an 18 percent clip, but he can’t improve that number without in-game reps. Antetokounmpo was the early favorite for the league’s Most Valuable Player of the Year award, but he’s since been relegated to second place amid James Harden’s torrid scoring streak. Antetokounmpo’s Bucks have the best record in the NBA. There is a rarely a night when he’s not the best player on the court.
Another year, another notch under the belt of greatness. This time, James dragged a group of young Lakers players into the playoff picture, only for them to dissolve into as after his quad injury. James is usually the end-all, be-all o his teams and Los Angeles is no different.
