2017-18 Projections For Giannis Antetokounmpo

After a big coming out party, the Greek Freak certainly isn’t done. Giannis won NBA Most Improved Player of the year in 2017, averaging 22.9 PPG 5.4 APG & 8.8 RPG. 

The Greek Freak certainly hasn’t maxed out his stats yet. He is literally a marginal jumper away from averaging 28-30 PPG. 

I think he has a legitimate shot for the NBA MVP next season, and possibly a repeat for Most Improved Player. 

Also, we forget that last season, Giannis changed positions, it’s not natural for a 7-footer to play point guard. Yet, he still averaged over 5 assists per game. I feel he has only scratched the surface.

I think he will average 26.7 PPG, 6.3 APG, & 9.7 RPG. The key to another step in his progression is a jumper. He shot only 27% from 3 point range, which is horrendous. If he can increase that number to 36%, watch out.
Notice how I only say “Greek Freak” and “Giannis” ? Yeah, I’m not going to even attempt to spell his last name. I had to look at the ESPN page 7 times just to get the headline right….
