Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has had quite a journey in the NBA. In his rookie season in 2013, Antetokounmpo wasn’t among the best rookies. But seven years on, he is one of the best players in the league.

In 2015, Giannis won the Most Improved Player award. He kept improving to become one of the best in the league. Last season, he led the Bucks to a Conference final and won the Most Improved Player award. This season, he looks like one of the favourites to win the award for the second season running.

Also, the Bucks look one of the favourites to win the Championship. The Bucks grew as a team along with Giannis and that is what keeps him in Milwaukee. “As long as we are winning,” is what Antetokounmpo said in an interview with Mackenzie Salmon of Sports Pulse when he was asked if he would continue his legacy in Milwaukee.
