1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

Who else could it be? Giannis became the first player in NBA history to average at least 30 points per game (30.4) while shooting better than 60 percent from the floor (61.1 percent), a huge achievement that somehow has gone under the radar but speaks volumes about his season.

He had one of the best years of his career, was in the MVP race for a good portion of the regular season and carried a struggling team to one of the top positions in the Eastern Conference.

Some could argue he carried the team a bit too much, though. If this season had such a disappointing ending, it is due to the fact that he got injured a few days before the playoffs and missed it entirely And, as it always happens, people love pretending they know better than the best professionals in the world and had very strong opinions about how he should have dealt with his calf problems.

Where things could have been handled better is in his fit with Lillard, which never felt as smooth as expected. The pick-and-roll game was great, but other than that, they didn't always feel like they were able to bring out the best in each other, and it might have to do with the fact that Giannis was still handling the ball a bit more than he probably should. They'll have to work on it this summer, in which they finally have some free time to analyze how they can grow together and build some chemistry to come back stronger next season.

These are just a few nitpicks anyway. Giannis' season was amazing and it's nothing but a shame that we weren't able to enjoy this level of basketball in the postseason. He looked efficient on offense, a better passer than ever, kept shining for his defensive versatility and remain one of the most dominant players in the league, good enough to earn the position as the best Bucks' player of the 2023-24 season.
