Giannis earns first-team All-NBA honors for 5th straight year

Giannis Antetokounmpo felt disrespected on Tuesday when the NBA All-Defensive teams were released and his name wasn’t included. But there was plenty of respect for the Milwaukee Bucks’ superstar when the All-NBA teams were announced Wednesday.

Antetokounmpo was named a first-team selection for a fifth-straight year and was the only player to be a unanimous choice among the 20 voters. His fifth selection passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most first-team honors in team history.

Antetokounmpo averaged a career-high 31.1 points, 11.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game this season on his way to finishing third in the NBA MVP voting behind Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid and Denver’s Nikola Jocic.
