He is performing amazingly, which is no surprise.
However, some recent footage from courtside during a game is a bit concerning.

Antetokounmpo stood by the game in the third quarter, seemingly in pain and trying to stretch his legs.
He looks to be feeling discomfort and while it doesn’t look too bad, it does seem to be bothering him.
This is the last thing that Bucks fans want to see before a very important NBA season.
The Bucks definitely don’t want Antetokounmpo to be injured.
While the team still has many strong players on the roster, there is no doubt that the Greek Freak is their biggest and most important star.
But he’s not just the best player for the Bucks, he is easily one of the greatest athletes in the entire NBA.
He has been hurt before but luckily Antetokounmpo has remained very healthy throughout his NBA career.
If the team hopes to return to the NBA Finals, they will need all of their players – especially him – to be in fine form.
Antetokounmpo has repeatedly said that he plans for the 2022-23 season to be a redemption story for his Bucks, following their Finals victory in 2021 only to lose in the playoffs last season at the hands of the Boston Celtics.
He still believes his team can come back stronger than ever and once again become the most dominant team in the league.
If he remains healthy and the rest of his team does as well, Antetokounmpo could very well be right.
