Giannis Antetokounmpo wins, for the second consecutive year, the NBA MVP award. He does so at the end of an extraordinary regular season, which saw his Bucks still holders (like last year) of the best league record (56 won, 17 lost) and he produced in a year of 29.5 points per evening ( fifth NBA), 13.6 rebounds (second, behind only Andre Drummond), 5.6 assists as well as a block and an average recovery, shooting 55.3% from the field. Unfortunately for him and for all the Bucks, an exciting regular season was followed by the bitter playoffs, which saw the Wisconsins team succumb to badly against the Miami Heat in the conference semifinal (1-4 the score of the series), worsening thus the team result obtained last year (reached the final in the East, lost to Toronto). The Greek becomes only the 12th player in NBA history to achieve the feat of winning the MVP title in two consecutive seasons, and only the third (together with Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon) to win the same year’s prize. better NBA defender than MVP.
