Yardbarker Logo By Chris Morgan of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 50: When the Greek Freak was drafted, he was a total unknown. The Bucks took a big swing on a raw, talented player with a last name none of us could spell. We’ve all learned how to spell Antetokounmpo now. Two years after winning Most Improved Player, Giannis won MVP. He had only about half a decade to work with, but you try telling a guy who can dunk from the free-throw line that he’s not one of the top 50 athletes of the 2010s.
