The Greek Freak of the NBA

The 22-year-old Greek Freak forward, Giannis Antetokounmpo, has become the scariest player in the #NBA. He is currently the leading scorer in the 2017-2018 NBA season averaging 36 points per game and shooting 66 percent from the field. If he continues playing with these types of stats, he will have great potential for an excellent future ahead of him in the NBA.

In the game against the Celtics, Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 28 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and three steals with 42 minutes game time. Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon helped the Bucks by scoring 15 points each during the game but still failed to win against the Celtics.

Malcolm Brogdon trade rumors

The rookie of the year, Malcolm Brogdon, is rumored to be traded to the Phoenix Suns for Eric Bledsoe.

The sources claimed that the Bucks are somewhat reluctant to trade Brogdon but for now, the Bucks are offering Matthew Dellavedova to the Suns for Eric Bledsoe.
