The Milwaukee Bucks were in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, playing a preseason game against the Atlanta Hawks.
Anyone paying attention to the Bucks knows the team is adamant about improving after last season and again making – and winning – the NBA Finals.
Of course, Giannis Antetokounmpo will be a major part of the team’s success.
Giannis is in midseason form already. 💥

He looks ready to go and was wowing the crowd in Abu Dhabi.
Antetokounmpo rushed to the basket and followed through with a monster dunk, rattling the rim and leading to loud cheers from the fans and the bench.
This is what Antetokounmpo does best and if he’s able to perform like this all season long then no amount of defense will be able to truly contain him.
Bucks Bouncing Back
No one can say the Bucks had a bad season in 2021-22 but all can agree that they wished to do more.
That’s what happens after a team wins the Finals – anything less than another championship feels like a disappointment.
Antetokounmpo has repeatedly said that he’s aiming to win it all again in 2022-23.
He is well aware of the power he has and how he will need to lead his team, both through his words and his actions.
The All-Star former MVP will need to remain in good health and with a steadfast determination for nothing short of perfection.
He will also need to move through any and all defense, as he did in Abu Dhabi against the Hawks.
But Antetokounmpo could claim his third trophy if he keeps playing like this.
