No. 2 - Giannis Antetokounmpo

Another Bucks player who shattered the mold in 2021 was none other than Giannis Antetokounmpo. Many said he was incapable of being the leader on a title-winning team, with some going as far as to say that he would have to leave Milwaukee to ever win. He silenced them, etching his name in history with one of the best NBA Finals performances to date for the Milwaukee Bucks.

With that title, Antetokounmpo joined legendary power forwards like Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Garnett as players with at least one MVP and a championship under their belt. Some Bucks fans would argue that Antetokounmpo has already surpassed them, but the debate still rages on. With another title, arguments about him could inch closer to him being in the top 10 best players ever rather than 20.

Antetokounmpo would also cement his status as the unquestioned greatest Buck in franchise history. Some think he has already surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the only other Finals MVP winner in the team's history, but another one of those trophies in Antetokounmpo's collection would essentially etch it in stone as the only Milwaukee Buck with two of them.

Outside of Rookie of the Year and Sixth Man of the Year, Antetokounmpo has earned just about every accolade in the NBA. At this point in his career, winning championships is all that matters. He's hungry for another title, which has been clear since he won the first one. He just wants to win like the greats and add to his legacy. This could be a legacy-altering stretch for Giannis Antetokounmpo.
