Giannis Antetokounmpo should be named the MVP for the 2019/20 season, according to the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, Mike Budenholzer.

Budenholzer believes the “Greek Freak” ‘has done more than enough to deserve a back-to-back MVP’.

“I had no idea that that was the case, but it makes sense. I think it was 64, 65, 66 games for different teams, so that’s certainly a significant body of work, and more importantly, certainly, Giannis, in our minds, has done more than enough to deserve a back-to-back MVP.

What he does for us on both ends of the court, what he does every night, the way he sets the bar for us, culture-wise, work ethic-wise, just as a teammate. He’s an incredible teammate, plays unselfishly, does everything.

And I think that’s kind of what the MVP is, so we certainly feel like he’s very deserving, and we’ll be excited to support him,” Budenholzer told Bucks reporters, via Eric Woodyard of ESPN.
