Giannis Antetokounmpo asks Bucks fans to stop calling him MVP

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the reigning NBA MVP, but he’s already putting it firmly in the rearview mirror.

The city of Milwaukee celebrated Antetokounmpo’s MVP award on Sunday, with roughly 20,000 fans crowding around Fiserv Forum to hear the star forward speak. When he did, he made an unusual request of the Milwaukee crowd: he doesn’t want to hear himself called MVP until he wins it again next year.

Antetokounmpo has demonstrated a mentality that he wants to keep improving and looking forward, not back. Ultimately, the Bucks fell short of their ultimate goal of an NBA title, losing to the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals. That’s the big goal for Giannis, and he wants to do it with Milwaukee as well.
