Giannis Antetokounmpo shows something different every game. Sometimes it’s his passing, or his athletic ability, his rebounding, or, in this game, his outside shooting. Imagine how good he’d be if he could put those things together in a single game! He might then be close to the hype that is being heaped on him.
Every opposing commentator crew loves him, showering him with adulation and fawning over his athletic gifts. One of the Spurs’ guys compared him to Dirk Nowitzki, forgoing the more common comparison of Durant. But I urge everyone to temper their expectations. Can we at least wait until he drops 20 before anointing him emperor of the universe?
