All of basketball’s talented young players make you wish the future were now. Progress of that group’s upper-echelon, though, can be so tantalizing that it’s easy to appreciate the process while waiting for maturity – Giannis Antetokounmpo is just such a player.

Freakish.

It seems like we say it every time we profile Giannis, but still bears mentioning again – he’s one of only several players in the world that can complete this sequence. And he’s not even scratching the surface of his potential!

Dwyane Wade won’t be around forever; we’re glad The Greek Freak has picked up the windmill crossover mantle.
