The Milwaukee Bucks secured a narrow victory of 118-117 over the Philadelphia 76ers to launch their 2023-24 NBA campaign, and Giannis left an indelible mark in the record books.

Giannis Antetokounmpo caught everyone’s attention during the off-season when he hinted that his future might not be intertwined with the Milwaukee Bucks unless they took the necessary steps to maintain their status as championship contenders.

In response to Giannis’s concerns, the Bucks made a surprising move by trading for Damian Lillard. Antetokounmpo demonstrated his commitment by extending his contract with the Bucks.

During the Bucks’ first home game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Giannis achieved a historic milestone, surpassing a record previously held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, as reported by Eric Nehm.

Giannis Antetokounmpo now stands as the all-time leader in the Bucks for the most field goals made, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s previous mark of 5,902.

Before 2021, Abdul-Jabbar was the last superstar to bring an NBA championship to the Bucks in 1971.
