4. Giannis Antetokounmpo

Last week's rank: 7

It's hard to deny greatness when Giannis has had a historic week for the NBA.

The highest riser in this week's MVP Power Rankings is former MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. He started the week off hot by setting a new Milwaukee Bucks franchise record for points scored in a single game with 64 points. Yes, you read that right 64 points in the win against the Indiana Pacers.

Giannis not only set the Buck's single-game scoring record, but he would also go on to set the franchise record for rebounds in a single game as well. On Sunday night, Giannis led the way with 17 rebounds and 26 points.

Going 4-0 in a single week is no easy task, yet Giannis and the Bucks made it look easy. All week long, Giannis was lighting up the scoreboard with insane stats, which is why every win Milwaukee had looked so easy.

The former MVP should be higher on the list if it wasn't for the great play by the three names ahead of him. With this in mind, Giannis should rise in the coming weeks.

Milwaukee fans have seen the greatness firsthand from their franchise player. If he can continue this level of play, he will no doubt win the MVP race once the season is over.
