Jason Kidd: Giannis Could Become Combination Of LeBron, Dirk

Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing a mix of point guard, both forward spots and even center on defense in some lineups.

Antetokounmpo is averaging 22 points, nine rebounds and six assists plus two steals and two blocks per game.

“Having being around some of the best in the world in LeBron (James) and Dirk (Nowitzki),” Jason Kidd said referencing former Team USA and Dallas Mavericks teammates, “wouldn’t it be cool to have those two combined as one player? Maybe that could happen.”

“I want to make great plays. It can be blocking a shot, it can be passing to an open teammate or dunking. Just great plays,” Antetokounmpo said. “That’s what makes me excited.”

The Bucks signed Antetokounmpo to a four-year, $100 million extension in September.

“We’re in the early stages of seeing where he can take us,” Kidd said. “What he’s done is show that he can handle a lot right now. There’s going to be a time where we’re going to raise the bar again and see how he does.”
