Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo becomes 7th player in franchise history to reach 10,000 points


Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo made franchise history on Monday against the Chicago Bulls.

Antetokounmpo became just the seventh Bucks player ever to reach 10,000 career points:

Antetokounmpo is one of the best basketball players in the world and figures to dominate the NBA for years to come. The Bucks star came into Monday averaging 30.0 points, 12.8 rebounds and 5.5 assists while shooting 55.3 percent from the floor and 61.2 percent from the free-throw line.

The Bucks lost to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals in six games. Now that Kawhi Leonard is in the Western Conference, though, many believe Milwaukee has a great shot at winning the East this season. Most pundits have the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers meeting in the 2020 Eastern Conference Finals.

Antetokounmpo will make $25,842,697 this season. If he doesn’t sign the supermax extension with the Bucks next summer, he would become an unrestricted free agent in 2021.

Giannis has said multiple times he doesn’t like big-market cities and loves playing in Milwaukee. Wisconsin fans are hoping their MVP stays in town for the rest of his NBA career.

The Bucks, just like last season, have the best record in the NBA. Giannis has a really good shot of winning his second straight MVP award.
