    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    That is why there is a buzz around Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s young, he’s raw, he’s playing very limited minutes but he has the kind of athletic gifts you can’t teach. Like this highlight from the Bucks win over Boston Friday night, when he makes the chasedown block at one end, races back up the court on…

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months). However, the Bucks signed him over the summer and the original prognosis made you think he would be suiting up for Milwaukee by training camp. Then that got pushed back to the…

    The life of an NBA rookie such as Giannis Antetokounmpo has its challenges. Sure, suddenly he’s the rookie with some buzz after showing flashes of his seemingly limitless potential while getting a little run with the Bucks this preseason; but come the regular season he will spend a lot of time on the bench behind…

  5. Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo’s hands are freakishly large

    Oct 21, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is a project — a guy with a fantastic frame, great athleticism and he’s shown a few skills this preseason, but it’s going to be a couple years before we know just how good the young Greek can be. What we do know now: He has freakishly large hands. All weekend NBA twitter…

  6. However you pronounce it, Antetokounmpo looks pretty good for Bucks

    Oct 11, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    The book on Giannis Antetokounmpo is that he was raw and untested, but he had some good physical tools. Down the line maybe he could be a point forward in the league. The Bucks took him at 15 and this was a guy we weren’t going to have to figure out how to pronounce his…

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    The Bucks picked up Carlos Delfino this summer at a very reasonable $3.2 million per year, part of their “we’re not tanking, but we are reshaping the roster and we’ll not be all that good” strategy (which was led by getting O.J. Mayo). Now the Bucks are going to be without Delfino for most of…

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  9. People can’t really pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name in Greece, either

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Can you say Giannis Antetokounmpo? by sport24tv We showed you Bucks fans struggling with the pronunciation of the team’s first round draft pick, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and given the unfamiliar collection of letters that comprise his last name, this was the expected outcome of this fun little exercise.

  10. How do you pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo? Don’t ask Bucks fans (video)

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is not a difficult name to pronounce. It sounds exactly how it’s spelled. Somehow – and I really don’t understand how this happened – Milwaukee fans struggled hilariously to say the name of the Bucks’ latest first-round pick (hat tip: Jeremy Schmidt of Bucksketball): Antetokounmpo, a point forward the from Greece who Milwaukee…

    There was a time, not that long ago, when the Bucks were of the belief that they should retain big man Gustavo Ayon for next season. Back in June, they reportedly decided to pick up his $1.5 million option. A month later, however, before the contract was set to become fully guaranteed, the team has…
