Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo throws his own block party against the Pistons

Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

Giannis Antetokounmpo elevated himself to superstar status last season after enjoying a remarkable campaign with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The 'Greek Freak' enjoyed a career year last season as he incredibly led the Bucks in points, assists, rebounds, blocks and steals.

He posted 22.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.9 blocks per game and deservedly earned his first All-Star appearance.

The 22-year-old made such a huge leap that he was also awarded the Most Improved Player trophy.

Heading into his fifth year, the Milwaukee star is expected to reach new levels once again and displayed his all-around quality in the team's latest pre-season clash.

He scored 17 points, grabbed six rebounds and handed out six assists as the Bucks secured a 107-103 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday.

During the win, Antetokounmpo enjoyed a number of highlight plays as he hosted his own block party at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Multiple Pistons players were invited as he impressively swatted away some of their attempts at the rim.

Andre Drummond was the first victim as he blocked him on two occasions in quick succession as he refused to allow the big man to put the ball through the hoop.

He saved his best rejection for Avery Bradley as he ran the length of the court to hit the Detroit guard with a terrific chase down block.

It was reminiscent of LeBron James, something which Bradley is all too familiar with.

Giannis is an athletic specimen and can do almost anything on the court with his ridiculous length.

He will be the cornerstone of the Wisconsin-based franchise after signing a long-term extension last year without a player option.

The Athens-born star has stated that he plans to remain loyal to the franchise and spend his entire career with them.

The organisation is in great hands and has a legitimate star to build their team around as they aim to become one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

Giannis led them to the playoffs last year but he will be aiming to get them past the opening round for the first time since 2001.

Head coach Jason Kidd has a squad capable of causing problems to the best teams in the conference and they'll certainly be one of the teams to watch this year.

The victory over the Pistons was Milwaukee's first of the pre-season and they can now gear up for their opener against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday.
