On Tuesday Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks joined a rare group of NBA players after being named this season’s Defensive Player of the Year.
He is now one of only five players in league history to win both the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year.
Antetokounmpo wiped out the competition, having received 75 first-place votes for Defensive Player of the Year, with Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers coming in second with 14 first-place votes.
The NBA still has time to decide the MVP of this season and if Antetokounmpo takes home that crown too he will join Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon as the only players in NBA history to win both awards in the same season.
The news comes just one day before the NBA announced a that it would postpone Game 5 of three different playoff series after the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to boycott their playoff game following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in the team’s home state.
The league is yet to announce when the playoff series will resume.
