Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo named to All-NBA Second Team (read here): Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes about Giannis' selection to an All-NBA team, making him just the 10th player in franchise history to achieve that feat. He is the first Buck to make the All-NBA Second Team since Sidney Moncrief in 1985-86. Antetokounmpo made history by becoming the first player in the National Basketball Association to finish a season in the top-20 for total points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals, and became just the fifth player all-time to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals per game over the course of a season. Voters select two guards, two forwards and one center for each team, choosing players at the position they play regularly. The Bucks took the third-seeded Toronto Raptors to six games in a first-round playoff series before losing the series 4-2.
