Giannis Antetokounmpo's nickname is appropriate: The Greek Freak. The Milwaukee Bucks' 19-year-old center turned in some per-game averages (6.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists in 24.6 minutes per game) as a rookie that put him in some heady company. Now playing for the Greece national team as it prepares for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, Antetokounmpo's incredible athleticism was on display during an exhibition game against Turkey.
With his team up 36-23 in the second quarter, the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft stole the ball at foul line, ran the length of the floor in two dribbles and finished with a one-handed dunk. Yes, Antetokounmpo covered just over 70 feet of hardwood needing only two dribbles. Did we mention his crazy measurables?
.@G_ante34 is now 6'11 with a 7'4 wingspan. I love him at PG. In Vegas, he averaged 17 pts, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) August 16, 2014
A 6-foot-11 point guard?! Don't forget Magic Johnson was listed at 6-9.
