It was only fitting that Giannis Antetokounmpo wrapped up his historic 2016-17 season with a pile of awards.

Antetokounmpo was named the NBA's Most Improved Player for this past season, beating out Denver's Nikola Jokic and Utah's Rudy Gobert.

He was also named to the All-NBA second team and the All-Defensive second team (both of which were already announced).

In his age-22 season, Antetokounmpo averaged 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks, and 1.6 assists, making him just the fifth player in NBA history to lead his team in all five major categories.

Hall of Famers (or eventual Hall of Famers) Dave Cowens, Scottie Pippen, Kevin Garnett, and LeBron James are the only other players to ever accomplish the feat.

Antetokounmpo was also voted to his first All-Star team.

The Greek Freak's ceiling is virtually limitless; at this time next year, we could be talking league MVP for the budding superstar.
