As we head into a free agent frenzy that’s guaranteed to transform the NBA, its offseason
Did you see that block Giannis Antetokounmpo had the other night? You know the one I’m talking about, when he snuffed Joel Embiid at the rim and started a Milwaukee fast break in the other direction. Actually that generic description doesn’t really do that block justice, so let’s rewind.
The nature of the Toronto Raptors’ title run makes it seem hasty. Kawhi Leonard wasn’t acquired until last summer. Pascal Siakam, the newly-minted Most Improved Player of the Year, started just five games in 2017-18 before staking his claim as one of the league’s most valuable two-way players this season. Marc Gasol only arrived in Toronto at the trade deadline, after more than a decade spent with the Memphis Grizzlies.
He's just the second Milwaukee Bucks player to win the award in franchise history. The other was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who did it three times with the Bucks before winning three more with the Los Angeles Lakers. Also, according to ESPN's Stats and Info, Antetokounmpo is the lowest-drafted MVP in the lottery era along with Steve Nash.
