League Dishes on Point Giannis

Giannis Antetokounmpo has certainly made a splash around the NBA in the last few weeks. Beginning with his first career triple-double against the Lakers on Feb. 22, Antetokounmpo averaged 19.8 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.6 assists over the ensuing nine-game stretch, including two more triple-doubles on Feb. 29 vs. Houston and March 6 vs. Oklahoma City. In a matter of three weeks, Antetokounmpo has tied the franchise record for triple-doubles in a season and has taken his game to a whole new level.

With his stellar performance on the court, the attention surrounding the 21-year-old is increasing with each impressive stat line he produces.

Here’s a sampling of the word around the league:

Jerryd Bayless – Milwaukee Bucks guard

Fred Hoiberg – Chicago Bulls head coach

The buzz around Giannis and the Bucks will hopefully continue as the team progresses and shows promise on the court. But regardless, Antetokounmpo has captivated an entire league as we are just beginning to see the Greek Freak reach his potential.
