The Milwaukee Bucks came into this season with high hopes for their team built around young players. Jason Kidd took over the team in 2014 and it seems as if they have slowly been improving. One of the brightest parts of this Bucks team is young guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo has had a stellar year so far, averaging 22.3 ppg on nearly 51% shooting. The Bucks are fighting for a playoff spot and currently sit at 10th in the East with an 6-8 record. Despite Antetokounmpo’s outstanding play, he has not been getting as much attention as you would expect. Jason Kidd thinks he knows why:
Kidd was asked why Antetokounmpo is not getting more recognition around the league. "It's hard to pronounce," Kidd said.

He certainly has a point there. However, if Antetokounmpo keeps playing like this, people are going to have to learn his name.
