LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is the NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the 2019-20 season.

Antetokounmpo is the anchor of a Bucks unit that had the top defensive rating (103.36) in the league. He’s one of the few players in the NBA capable of guarding all five positions.

Antetokounmpo is also the favorite to win Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive season.

The 25-year-old superstar has the opportunity to join Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only two players to win both awards in the same season.

Antetokounmpo averaged 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists, one steal and one block in 63 regular-season games.
