Giannis Antetokounmpo at Point Guard for Bucks?
You've heard about the "Greek Freak", Giannis Antetokoumpo. The kid is only 19 years old but 6' 9" tall. Heck, tall enough to play PF, although he's really lanky, and could only be a stretch four if you really, really wanted him to go that way. However, the Bucks want him to go the other way. They've been having him handle point guard duties in the Summer League. As a consequence both his assists and turnovers have increased. However, imagine the tall, über-long stride Giannis blowing by the fastest of guards and towering over them for finishes in the lane. Giannis was already a mismatch for opposing defenders on the wing. Imagine him creating chaos as a true Magic Johnson type player. The ceiling is high for Antetokoumpo, so watch out.
Check out this dunk from yesterday:
This could also be a huge boon for his fantasy value, as Giannis could theoretically be eligible for PG/SG/SF/PF in your fantasy lineup.
