Giannis Antetokounmpo – 19.3 points per game – 22nd in the NBA

Giannis has been the best scorer on the Bucks so far in the season, and he’s getting closer to the upper echelon of scorers across the NBA. Paul George is in tenth place with 22 points per game, so if the Greek Freak can continue to grow as a scorer this season it’s not impossible that he pushes the top ten of his list.

One positive to note about Giannis’ spot on this list–he’s one of the most efficient scorers in the Association right now. Only one player above Antetokounmpo has a better field goal percentage (Blake Griffin), and just two players scoring more than Giannis have a better three-point percentage than he does (Stephen Curry and Bradley Beal, although Reggie Jackson and Giannis are tied).

If Antetokounmpo keeps up this dynamo scoring, he’s going to quickly become one of the elite players in the NBA. There’s just no two ways around it. Right now Giannis is scoring less than one point per game less than Jimmy Butler, and he’s shooting better from both the field and three-point territory. That’s how good he’s been.

That’s a big if, but who knows. Giannis has consistently defied expectations set on him, and the fact that he’s just three points per game out of the best ten scorers in the NBA at age 20 shows that his potential is crazy. Only one player above Giannis is younger than he is–Jahlil Okafor is just 19, and currently scoring 0.4 more points per game.

It’ll be fun to watch and see if Antetokounmpo can get his name on any of the other four categories this season–right now points per game is the only major category he leads the Bucks in.
