Giannis Antetokounmpo

Standing at 6’ 10” and nicknamed “the Greek freak”, Antetokounmpo was the 15th overall pick in the 2013 draft.

His size and impressive agility have had many labeling him as a candidate to be an outstanding two-way player, and he is perhaps the player on this list with the greatest potential.

The youngest player currently in the league (he turned 19 in December) only had one season of organized basketball experience prior to his NBA introduction – having played for Filathlitikos Zografou in the Greek second division.

Undoubtedly a monster on defense, if he can continue to develop at his current rate and add some offensive finesse, who knows how good he could get.

In his first three months in the league the Greek Freak had a 100% success rate on dunks, making 28 of 28.
