The Milwaukee Bucks have the best record in the league, and this team is definitely one of the best in their franchise history. One of the main reasons the Bucks are doing so well is their versatility and the depth of their roster which enables them to play at a high rate for the majority of this season.
However, despite having a solid team and chemistry around it, the Bucks also have a legitimate MVP candidate in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who once again elevated his game and shown tremendous improvement in pretty much every aspect of the game.
In a recent interview with Bucks GM Jon Horst, it’s pretty clear now that there are only 6 games left in the season that his team is the best in the league with Giannis being the frontrunner in the MVP conversations. Even though Horst is obviously subjective, he did make some really good points on the count of Giannis and his ability to dominate both ends of the floor which helped the Bucks secure the most wins this season.
“To me, it’s really clear. We got the best team. We’ve beaten Houston twice, we’ve got the best team in the East, the best team in the league right now record-wise. We’ll see what happens in the playoffs. And Giannis offensively and defensively is dominating this league. He is averaging 26 and 13 and he is also the only guy that is averaging over a block and a steal a game to add on to those stats. Offensively he has a significant impact on the team and defensively he dominates the league as well.
