He said that this was going to be a redemption and revenge year for him and his Bucks and they were going to push through the competition and fight hard all the way to the NBA Finals.
The season is still young and his opponents are not going easy on him but Antetokounmpo is so far making good on his promise.

Antetokounmpo is putting up incredible numbers among others in the NBA.
He is second in points per game as well as rebounds per game too.
Additionally, Antetokounmpo also has the best defensive rating throughout the league.
Perhaps most importantly, the Bucks are currently the only undefeated team in the NBA and have already faced off against some serious competition and laid them out flat.
The revenge season has commenced and it’s a sight to behold so far.
How Long Can He Go?
Antetokounmpo has come storming out of the gates into 2022-23, with an average of 33.8 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 5.2 assists.
For the record, his career average has been 21.9 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 4.6 assists.
It’s clear that he’s pushing harder than ever before.
But can he keep it up for more than 70 games and really help lead his team back to the Finals?
The season is still young and some of the biggest competition from the East hasn’t emerged yet, as teams are still figuring themselves out, finding their rhythm, and getting into the swing of things.
Antetokounmpo seemingly doesn’t need to get into the swing of anything and is in playoff form right away.
But will he be able to keep it up for so many more months?
