The Milwaukee Bucks took home some MAJOR hardware last night at the NBA awards on TNT.  According to the Milwaukee Bucks, "Mike Budenholzer has been named the NBA’s Coach of the Year for the 2018-19 season, the league announced tonight during the NBA Awards. Budenholzer, who is now a two-time winner of the award, joins Don Nelson as the only coaches in Bucks history to be named NBA Coach of the Year."

But the awards didn't stop.  Oh no.  

Up next, according to another press release from the Milwaukee Bucks, "General Manager Jon Horst has been named NBA Executive of the Year, the league announced tonight. Horst is just the second General Manager in Bucks history to win the award."

Then - the most anticipated award of the evening - the Most Valuable Player.  

We have heard the chants in Fiserv Forum when he steps on the court.  

He's our Greek Freak.
