Report: Antetokounmpo, Oladipo, Plumlee, LaVine in dunk contest


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) 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. 


Bucks' Antetokounmpo to Knicks: It's time to call up my brother


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) If Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was running the Knicks front office, one roster move he would make would be to call up older brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who has spent the season in the D-League after being drafted in the second round (51st overall) last year. Thanasis is averaging 13.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in 22 appearances for Westchester.

The younger Antetokounmpo expressed his opinion a day before the Bucks were set to play the 5-35 Knicks in London.

"He’s ready," Giannis said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "I don’t think the Knicks have to lose anything. They lose 15 [straight] now. Tomorrow is going to be 16. They don’t have anything to lose. My brother could bring energy to the team and [is] hard-working, and guys from the team can see that and take something from him."

The Knicks have three players on 10-day contracts, and could be making more roster moves after dealing J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland. Giannis, who is known as The Greek Freak, is confident the Knicks will give his brother a chance to showcase his skills in the NBA soon.

"He’s going to make it," Antetokounmpo said. "I think the callup is going to be soon, hopefully soon. My brother is working hard, keeps staying focused and does what it takes to make it in the league. He’s working, effort is going to pay off.

"I thought he [would] get called up before the game. I’m a little disappointed he’s not going to play tomorrow against me."

Starting options for Week 8


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) In my Week 8 (Dec. 15-21) Fantasy basketball planner, I identified eight lower-end players worth starting this week, headlined by Knicks guard Tim Hardaway and David West.

Other players worth getting into your lineup for this week are: Pacers guard Rodney Stuckey and Magic guard Evan Fournier;Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist; and Bucks center Larry Sanders and Celtics center Tyler Zeller.

Check out what I have to say about each player, as well as my take on the Nets' season of futility in the Week 8 planner.

Giannis Antetokounmpo to start at point guard Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Bucks coach Jason Kidd indicated Monday that the team will start Giannis Antetokounmpo at point guard in Tuesday's preseason action against the Cavaliers, the team announced.

Kidd and Bucks assistant Gary Payton are two of the most prolific point guards of the past 25 years, and it appears Antetokounmpo is on the verge of taking over the mantle at the position for Milwaukee after playing point guard during the summer league. If he sticks, the second-year player would be one of the taller players at the position in recent memory at just an inch under seven feet.


Hype may be too high for Giannis Antetokounmpo


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) No matter what he accomplishes in his second NBA season, Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is likely to be a historical outlier, given his age. The question is, how much of a leap can the now-20-year-old take next season.

Only 15 players in NBA history have logged as many minutes in a single season as a teenager as Antetokounmpo's 1,897, so he is occupying fairly rarified air already. His age is a big part of why he is considered a big-time breakout prospect for Fantasy purposes, but he has a long way to go from a statistical standpoint.

Antetokounmpo was good for a 19-year-old rookie, but his season averages of 6.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game left a lot to be desired. It is easy to dream about a Antetokounmpo taking a big step forward, but that next step is never guaranteed -- for every Anthony Davis there is a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist whose development follows a slower, less linear path. 

Antetokounmpo was very good -- for a 19-year-old. However, Fantasy owners don't get extra points, rebounds or assists if the degree of difficulty is higher, so you are betting on Giannis taking a huge step forward at the age of 20. Antetokounmpo has become something of an internet darling, and his play in Summer League and the FIBA World Cup dominated much of the offseason discussion, which only helped build the hype to potentially unsustainable levels. 

He is a lottery ticket, for sure, but he is one that might not be worth the cost at this point. 


Giannis Antetokounmpo plays through ankle woes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo made a surprise return to action Saturday, as he ended up missing no time as a result of an ankle injury after being cleared to play just before tipoff vs. Miami.

Antetokounmpo was able to play 22 minutes in the game, though he obviously struggled to adapt to playing with the ankle hurting him. He scored just one point while missing all five of his field-goal attempts, though he did add four rebounds, two assists and one block in an 88-67 loss.

Antetokounmpo told reporters after suffering the injury Thursday that it was the first time he had aver sprained an ankle, so it was surprising to see him take the floor so soon. He is putting together a solid rookie season, averaging 7.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in just 24.4 minutes per game. 


Update: Giannis Antetokounmpo will be available


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will be available for Saturday's game against the Heat, despite being ruled out earlier in the game. The team updated his status just before gametime, as he feels comfortable enough to play through the ankle sprain suffered in the team's last game.
