Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo won the MVP last year, as the Greek Freak appeared to figure it all out and finally start asserting his will on the court.

If you could believe it, he has somehow improved on that historic season. Giannis, who came into Thursday averaging 31.7 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game, dropped 34 points while nailing five 3-pointers, as the now 25-4 Milwaukee Bucks defeated LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

If he starts consistently taking and making these at an above-average clip, it's game over for the rest of the league.

Giannis has bettered his scoring and rebounding from last year, and is shooting 32% from 3 on five attempts per game. Now at the controls for the best team in the league in Milwaukee, Antetokounmpo has continued to improve himself, which should get him some consideration for the league's Most Improved Player award, as well as MVP.

They'll never do it, but they should.

We're witnessing one of the most dominant spectacles in all of modern basketball unfold right before our eyes. Sit back and enjoy the ride, because there is no telling how good Giannis is going to be in a few years. He certainly isn't done picking up trophies.
