PLAYERS: Alec Burks
TEAMS: Utah JazzMilwaukee Bucks
Tweet While the 2013 NBA Draft class hasn’t been remarkable by any means in terms of production this season as a whole. Largely, the rookies have been a disappointment and have struggled to find consistent success. However, one of the most exciting rookies in the league is the “Greek Freak,” Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. The lengthy, monster-handed youngster hasn’t been consistent or highly productive, but he definitely has shown sparks of remarkable potential. If you haven’t seen any of those instances, he did this on Monday night versus the Jazz: That’s a 6’9” guard/forward demolishing a shot defensively, then leading the break and dishing out a nifty dime. If this is what Giannis is doing after just turning 19 years old in December, it’s crazy to think about what the future might hold for him.

Utah Jazz: Bucks Blowout Is Final Nail in Corbin Coffin

The front office can set teams up for “failure.” There’s failure and then there’s “failure.” The Sixers gave all their pieces away, so they’re just “failing.” Each loss is accompanied by a wink and a nod. Of course, losing 14 in a row really puts those quotation marks on thin ice. The Knicks are failing, with no quotation marks in sight. No winks, no nods, no morose...
