New Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said he expects to play the now 6’11” Giannis Antetokounmpo at the point guard position.

When seeing him convert plays like this one, it’s easy to see why.

Approximately 30 seconds into the video clip above, we see¬†Antetokounmpo handle the ball at the top of the three-point arc, while contemplating using the screen to execute what’s likely to be a pick-and-roll set. As two defenders converge,¬†Antetokounmpo splits them, before finishing at the rim with a powerful two-handed slam.

That kind of quickness, agility and ball-handling ability for someone his size is part of what earned him the nickname “Greek Freak,” and a reminder of how ridiculous of a player he’s likely to morph into; after all, he’s only 19 years old.
