I'm not sure anybody has flashed more upside in summer league than Giannis Antetokounmpo, who's scored at least 15 points in each of his first four games.
It's just so rare to find a prospect this big (6'11"), long and athletic who actually handles the ball and creates offense from the perimeter.
He's getting to the basket, which he can do with just one dribble and two ridiculous strides from the arc. And he's separating in the mid-range, whether it's off a spin move or step-back jumper.
But where Antetokounmpo has really shown potential is with his off-the-dribble game. Coach Jason Kidd played him at the point against the Utah Jazz, something he seems intent on experimenting with during the season.
"We've seen it in practice," Kidd told the Journal Sentinel's Charles F. Gardner, referring to Antetokounmpo's ability to run the point. "When you see a player's comfort level with the ball — no matter what size — we wanted to see it in game action. We slowly have started letting him have the ball and running the offense."
Antetokounmpo dished out five assists in his debut at the point. Gardner added: "Antetokounmpo has grown in confidence since the end of last season. He is more assertive on the floor and more effective in the half-court game, an area where he is striving to improve."
We're not just talking about an athletic Greek Freak of nature with monster length and oven mitts for hands; Antetokounmpo's skills are looking sharp—sharper than they were a year ago.
The fact that he's only 19 years old is downright frightening. This kid is going to be special by the time he hits his NBA stride.
