    Fixed. He's right there in the 11-14 range in my opinion. Hopefully I am not embarrassed to read this in the future. :p

    What's the biggest weakness of Giannis' game right now? Is it jump shooting?

    His passing, penetration and hustle get highlighted in highlight vids, but I'm curious as to what any weaknesses might be.

    Nice list. Harden is younger than Westbrook by the way.

    I had to look up with Gianis was drafted (#15) Wow that was the year Anthony Bennett went number one.

    Yeah he would go number one overall and Gobert would be second if they redid the draft. Anthony Bennett would be a late second round pick.

    What's crazy is that if I could, I'd already revise this list to move Giannis up a spot or two. He'll be right there with Towns.

    He doesn't even begin to compare to 88' Hakeem:

    24.8 ppg / 13.5 rebs / 3.4 blocks / 2.6 steals / 1.8 assists (this wasn't even Hakeems best season, just picked a good season from Dream)

    Great player, but has a long way to go to be compared to the best ever.

    I feel sorry for the Bucks. It's only a matter of time till this kid runs off to LA, NY, or Miami.

    "Milwaukee's going to go through this with the Greek Freak. That day's coming, right? Where he's going to look and say, 'Where is this organization? What are they doing here?' Like, you don't think Giannis has been watching what went on there for the last several months? Of what they allowed to go on with the front office? He's watching it. And the clock has started. Everybody in the league is trying to figure out how they are going to get him out of there. That has started." - BR

    FIFY. Hakeem was the greatest to ever bounce a ball on a playoff court.
