When teams go into the NBA draft the question isn’t “who is the best player now?” it’s “who is the best player three years, five years from now?”

The Bucks may have won that this draft with Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Greek Freak has all sorts of raw talent and that leads to some amazing plays, but he is still a young man from another culture trying to adjust to another culture. And that leads to some great stories, such as the one told by Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

He’s a gem now. Just wait a few years.
