Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the biggest rising stars in the NBA. His ability to consistently do things that cause our jaws to involuntarily hit the floor (like this) makes him one of the rare players many fans tune in to watch, regardless of team allegiance.
With that in mind, it’s not surprising that he’s landed the cover of NBA2K19 Standard Edition. And what a cover it is, courtesy of Bleacher Report.

Last year, his third in the Association, the Greek Freak averaged 26.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game.
His star power has also led the Milwaukee Bucks to rise in popularity across the nation, and it’s helped the franchise land a lucrative television deal.
He’s the real deal, and the scary thing is that he’s still just now tapping into his potential.
