“Greek Freak. That is one guy I like to watch. I mean Steph Curry up obviously is the most fun player that played the game but he’s on my team, and I get to see him every day but Greek Freak is probably one I really really enjoy to watch.”

“Greek Freak I think is a force and I have never seen anything like him and he could end up being the best player in the league,” said Durant.

The Milwaukee Bucks are in safe hands

Game 4 will be an interesting match as the Bucks will hope to get back to winning ways. Giannis averages 28.3 points, 12 rebounds, and 1 block per game in his series against the Nets. However, the Bucks are struggling because of his free throw percentage. He shoots at a percentage of 31.6 as Giannis needs to improve to reach the levels of Kevin Durant. Durant is arguably the best player in the NBA right now but the potential of Giannis is unbelievable.

However, there are certain improvements he needs to make in his game. His jump shots need improvement while also keeping his concentration as he commits a lot of turnovers. But when it comes to scoring inside, there are no other players who are as explosive as the Greek Freak.

As the series is unfinished, the Bucks need their bench players to step up as well. The quality of the two teams is quite clear for everyone to see. But for the Bucks to get past the Nets, Giannis and co will have to play better, otherwise, Durant will finish the series off. ‘
