As it is, Milwaukee Bucks talisman Giannis Antetokounmpo is already the franchise’s all-time leader in points, assists, and blocks. The 28-year-old is also the franchise leader for games played, field goal attempts, and free throw attempts. He achieved all that in his 10-year tenure with the team.
Right now, Antetokounmpo is on track to shatter two more franchise records this coming season.
Giannis Set to Break More Milwaukee Bucks Records
Some folks will argue that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the greatest player to ever dawn a Milwaukee Bucks uniform. As such, it comes as no surprise that its the Hall of Famer’s two long-standing records that Giannis will shatter in 2023-24.
Heading into the new campaign, Antetokounmpo is just eight field goals away from surpassing Kareem’s 5,902 career field goals for Milwaukee. Giannis should beat that record in their first game out when the Bucks take on the Philadelphia 76ers on opening night.
Giannis is also well on his way to becoming the Bucks’ all-time leading rebounder. He is currently 271 boards shy of Abdul-Jabbar’s mark. At this point, there is no doubt that Antetokounmpo will also be the franchise leader in rebounds at the end of the 2023-24 campaign. So long as he’s healthy, that is.
More Records Up For Grabs
It’s not just Giannis who will be climbing the franchise leaderboards this coming season.
Khris Middleton, who is currently the all-time leader for three-pointers made and attempted, can move up to No. 6 on the all-time field goals leaderboard if he logs another 398 field goals this coming season.
Brook Lopez, on the other hand, has a shot at climbing to the No. 2 spot for most career blocks with the Bucks. He is currently fourth all-time with 653 swats and will need 152 more blocks to move one spot behind Giannis, who stands as the all-time blocks leader for the team.
