Giannis Antetokounmpo is 6-11 and is one of, if not the best players in the league. “The Greek Freak” has just signed the largest NBA supermax contract ever at $228.2 million. He is making $193 per second, per game. 

Antetokounmpo has been in the league since 2011 with the Bucks. At 26 years old, he can score from anywhere. He is best in the paint using his height and athleticism. Although his shot can use some more work, he is always improving. He won the Most Improved Player Award in 2017, and from there, has won back to back MVPs in the past two seasons, as well as this season’s Defensive Player of the Year award. 

Antetokounmpo is on a mission to win a championship. He came up short last year. Many fans thought he would leave the Bucks this off-season. However, Giannis tweeted, “I got loyalty in my DNA.” He wasn’t wrong.  As he continues to get better, he could go down as one of the best to ever play. He is feared around the league.
