Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo looking to find his shot
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo has been struggling with his shot as of late. Over his past four games, Antetokounmpo is 12 of 33 from the field and 22 of 61 since the All-Star Break.
"I've got to find a rhythm," Antetokounmpo said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Because of the trade we lost a little bit of rhythm.
"I've just got to try to get everybody involved when I've got the ball. If that doesn't work, I've got to go back to my old move and start attacking the basket more and more and more."
Bucks' Kidd on Antetokounmpo: 'He can be an All-Star'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/12/15) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is set to participate in the Slam Dunk Contest and Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star Weekend, has drawn rave reviews from teammates and coaches around the league, including from his own coach, NBA.com reports.
"He has shown that he can be an All-Star in this league," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "When you look at his numbers, he has been consistent offensively and defensively. It’s just a matter of time for him to be one of those players that will be in the game and be looked upon as one of the best players in this league. In a short amount of time, his work ethic and the time he spends working on his game and studying the game is starting to show."
Lakers coach Byron Scott called the 20-year-old "special" and added that "he can be a difference-maker." Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that Antetokounmpo is "unique" and that he's "got a chance to be really special."
Guard Jerryd Bayless called Antetokounmpo "a hard worker," while guard Brandon Knight pointed to the forward's improving jump shot as a vital component to his growth. "It’s big, because it allows his defender to come up and feel that he needs to play him instead of just sagging off," Knight said.
"The game is slowing down for him," guard O.J. Mayo said. "He’s getting better every day, picking up on little things, gaining more confidence in his jump shot and his post-up game. His thing is time. Next week he’ll be a better player than he is today."
Antetokounmpo has averaged 12.0 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 50.7 percent from the field in his sophomore season.

Report: Antetokounmpo, Oladipo, Plumlee, LaVine in dunk contest
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Four players have committed to appearing in the NBA dunk contest during All-Star Weekend, according to Yahoo Sports.
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo, Magic's Victor Oladipo, Nets' Mason Plumlee and Timberwolves' Zach LaVine have all agreed to participate in the event.
Antetokounmpo and Oladipo were both drafted in 2013, and have already emerged as strong prospects. Antetokounmpo has averaged 11.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He's known as the "Greek Freak" due to his impresseive wingspan.
Oladipo has averaged 16.3 points per game during his sophomore season. LaVine is just 19-years-old, and is known for his vertical leap.
Plumlee is the only player involved with contest experience. He finished second in the McDonald's High School All-American game dunk contest.
|Giannis Antetokounmpo entered the league as a rookie with little track record, after playing in lower level Greek leagues before the Bucks made him the 15th overall pick in last June's draft. The 19-year-old acquitted himself quite well in spite of his lack of experience, appearing in all but five games as a rookie and averaging 6.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He even worked his way into the starting lineup 23 times for a last-place Bucks squad, though his role did not change much throughout the season. With a full season of experience under his belt, Antetokounmpo should be better equipped to take on a larger role, but he still remains something of a blank slate for Fantasy purposes. Consider him worth a late-round flier in all Fantasy formats on Draft Day, given his upside.
