   2017 NBA Manifesto

Giannis Antetokounmpo
SF/PF/C, 6’11, 222lbs, 22 years old, 4 years of experience

Ascended to greatness. And a unique greatness, too; the best kind of greatness. Antetokounmpo still lacks the outside shot, but the drives in transition, the drives in semi-transition, even the drives in the static half-court and the post-up play, have gotten so savvy so quickly, punctuated by brilliant finishing. And with his three-mile arms, he is just everywhere defensively. If I could play like anyone, it would be Giannis. [See intro for possible problems with this scenario, however.]

Player Plan: Beginning a circa. $80.5 million extension and there couldn’t be a better candidate for it.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 26th October 2017

Always versatile and productive, Antetokounmpo has started off the season in emphatic fashion, leading the league with a 36.8 point per game scoring average. He is flanking that with 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.0 blocks per game, and even if having that much to do for his team inevitably leads to high turnover numbers (3.8 per game thus far), that prize is absolutely worth paying considering how much he contributes all over. Giannis has reached the very top of the league and only continues to grow – believe it or not, even at this price, he is a bargain.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 23rd October 2017

Giannis is one of the most expensive options at any position in the game, but rightly so; Seemingly a MVP candidate for the indefinite future, Antetokounmpo is extremely valuable from a fantasy perspective on account of his ability to fill up the entire stat sheet. So far this season, he is particularly stepping up his scoring, recording an average of 38.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.7 steals and 0.7 blocks in the three Bucks games thus far. Small forward is a deep fantasy position, but there is no reason to look too far down the list for value when the second most expensive pick (behind only Kevin Durant) will do it all.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
