Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been turning heads since he arrived in the NBA. We all remember the story about him running to the Bucks’ arena before a game. Known as the “Greek Freak”, a new tale regarding Antetokounmpo now has Bucks fans buzzing even more.
Bucks general manager John Hammond met with the media on Wednesday and let every know that Antetokounmpo grew two inches during the season.
“I think Giannis is going to be a multiple position player someday. When he came last September he was 6’9″ and 190 [lbs.], and today he’s almost 6’11” and 217 lbs. I think Giannis is a guy that’s going to be able to play, at his size, he’s going to play some small forward and he’s going to play some power forward someday. He’s another multiple position guy, and I think that helps this process.”
Wow that is just crazy. Antetokounmpo was already one of the most athletic players in the NBA. Now that he has grown two inches, he is going to be a matchup nightmare.
