Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was named to the All-NBA second team over the weekend, and now is a finalist for the NBA's Most Improved Player award.

Antetokounmpo averaged 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 5.4 assists for the Bucks this season, and became just the fifth player in NBA history to lead his team in all five major categories.

The 22-year-old's numbers increased the board. Antetokounmpo averaged more points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals per game, and improved his shooting percentage from the field, the three-point line, and the charity stripe.

Denver big man Nikola Jokic and Utah center Rudy Gobert also were named finalists for the award.

The winner will be revealed on June 26.
