Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are the favored to represent the East in the NBA Finals this year -- and it's for good reason. Led by the reigning MVP, the Bucks have the NBA's best record at 53-12.
With the season set to resume at the end of this month, nobody really knows what to expect.
But for Giannis, he appears to be ready for war -- and his opponents should be very, very afraid.
This season, Giannis is averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game on 54.7% shooting. He's been on an absolute tear this season and was on track to win his second-straight MVP before the hiatus.
The Bucks are certainly on track to have a stellar season, but meeting their goals won't be easy. If they want the chip, they'll have to get through Toronto, Boston, Miami, and Philadelphia. If they get to the Finals, they'll have to beat one of the team out West, which includes the Clippers, Lakers, Nuggets, or Jazz.
Needless to say, things won't be easy. But so long as the Bucks have Giannis, they'll always be relevant.
