Giannis Antetokounmpo helped the Milwaukee Bucks remain undefeated in the NBA (6-0) and was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

The “Greek Freak” averaged 24.8 points, 13 rebounds, 5.3 assists and two blocks in four games last week.

Antetokounmpo also became the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1965 to begin a season with four straight games of 25+ points and 15+ rebounds.

The Greek point forward will not play against the Toronto Raptors later tonight, due to a concussion.

In the Western Conference, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors won the respective award.
