Bucks’ Rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo Is Still Physically Growing

Bucks_Giannis_Antetokounmpko_2013In what has been a dreary, overcast season so far for the Milwaukee Bucks, a ray of sunshine finally broke through Saturday night.

That was the eyebrow-raising performance of Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks’ intriguing rookie forward. Antetokounmpo made several exceptional plays throughout the course of the Bucks’ game against the Boston Celtics in the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

However, there was one sequence of plays that was simply jaw-dropping, one that was LeBronesque. That occurred in the second quarter when Celtics guard Jordan Crawford appeared on his way to a routine layup. But as Crawford was about to lay the ball off the backboard, Antetokounmpo soared from behind and, with his 7-foot-4 wingspan, swatted the ball away. That brought the partisan crowd and Bucks’ bench to their feet.
