    I absolutely love the Greek Freak and it makes you wonder why Jason Kidd didn't make him the prime ball handler earlier. He is flourishing with the ball in his hands and he is hard to stop with his athleticism. Going to be interesting to see how he finishes the season off.

    Do you like him ?

    What I really like is the long, athletic, wing trio of him, Parker & Middleton. That's just fun.

    I can't believe he wasn't taken earlier in the draft. There's no reason why he shouldn't have been top 10.


    Can you imagine Westbrook/Giannis/Durant?

    He was 6'9' at the draft not 7'. Also he was very raw and slender. Also never played against real competition. He was said to be the biggest mystery of the draft, and he was.

    But to OP, he is my fav non rocket.

    All things being equal though, I'd take Dante Exum over him.

    He was 6'9 and still believed to be growing, at the time. You can bulk him up. Movement was on point, just a matter of practice/development. He was too fluid at 6'9 to let him drop that much. He moved even better than Batum, who had a similar build/height.


    what about him?

    "Nelson wanted to draft him but Cuban said :NO"

    Is the part which I like the most whenever he's mentioned

    Bucks have their core set.

    Their 2,3 and 4 of the future are set. Like for the next 10 years in Middleton, Giannis and Jabari

    If they can use Monroe to swing a trade for a real defensive anchor down low, they can jump into top 4 East conversation soon

    Mavs moving down to secure enough money for a max contract when Donnie had originally wanted to get the Greek freak has to be one of the biggest draft blunders yet.

    With MCW out for the year, he's going to get a ton of time at the PG which is good for my fantasy team also

    I've never been so excited to watch a loss against even the Bulls since now that the core is finally clicking.
    But he has to learn to shoot otherwise he will never get that much better.

    And with all this Giannis craziness what gets overlooked is Jabari. He's going to be not that versatile but perhaps even better.
