Giannis wins NBA MVP for 2nd straight year

Giannis Antetokounmpo

MILWAUKEE (WQOW) - For the second year in a row, the Greek Freak has been named the NBA's MVP.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA's best record during a shortened regular season.

After a long break because of the coronavirus, the Bucks faltered and were eliminated at the hands of the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs.

Antetokounmpo joins Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only players to win the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards in the same season.

The Bucks star now has some decisions to make. He will be entering his final season under contract with the Bucks unless he signs an extension during this offseason.

The Bucks ownership has reportedly said it is willing to spend money to put extra talent around Antetokounmpo.
