Giannis Antetokounmpo records first triple-double of the season with phenomenal display

Most people know by now: Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best young players in the NBA.

The Greek Freak is a rare breed of athlete. Despite being 6'11" and 222lbs, he is nimble like a guard and as quick Allen Iverson crossover.

Well, maybe not that electric, but you get the gist.

The Milwaukee Bucks star is not 22 until December 6 and he is already making a real name for himself. His latest accomplishment came with his first triple-double of the season when he dropped 21 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 10 assists in the 93-89 win over the Orlando Magic.

Antetokounmpo has been deployed in both the front and backcourt and his ability to stuff the statsheet is quite a precocious one.

Only five players have recorded a triple-double in this young NBA season, with Russell Westbrook leading the charge with five of the eleven produced.

LeBron James and James Harden are next on the list and rank quite highly as likely candidates, but the next two are young talents with very bright futures in the game.

Antetokounmpo and Julius Randle both have one to their name and both represent teams that will consider themselves outside bets for the playoffs this year.

Either way, the Greek Freak was a treat last night as he added five steals and three blocks to his performance, too.
