2013 — Giannis Antetokounmpo over Anthony Bennett
You might not be able to spell his name, but you better get used to appreciating his game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo somehow gets better every year — his points and rebounds per game have risen every single season. In the 2018–19 season, he’s averaging 27 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 stocks (steals plus blocks), building a strong MVP case as the best player on the best team in the league, at least in the regular season.
He looks like he could very well be the face of the NBA as the league moves into LeBron’s waning years. The Greek Freak looks like he’ll be high on MVP ballots for many years to come.
