Voters were not close to putting Giannis Antetokounmpo in the NBA All-Star Game — he came in 10th in fan voting for the backcourt — but he’s a guy some coaches considered to round out the roster. Then the Bucks went on to make the playoffs and look like a potential breakout team this season.
A good Bucks start to the season might well be enough to get the Greek Freak into the All-Star Game in Toronto next February, I say in this latest PBT Extra. Two Bucks in the All-Star Game? Don’t get greedy, Milwaukee.
Antetokounmpo is the kind of player I want to see in a defense-free, up-tempo exhibition like the ASG. Get that man in the game.
