Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the NBA's elite players.

He can score almost at will, and utilize his length to cause havoc on the defensive end. He helped the Bucks to the league's best record in the 2018-19 season and "The Greek Freak" has caught the eye of San Antonio Spurs great David Robinson.

When asked about Milwaukee's NBA MVP candidate, Robinson marveled over Antetokounmpo's game. Robinson even admitted Antetokounmpo can do a lot more than he did during his playing days with the Spurs.

"His growth has been phenomenal. I see a lot of the things that I had to learn that he's doing.
"Physically he's getting stronger, he's just grown into this beast now, and it's so much fun to watch him play, to see such a big guy handle a ball like that, really be able to make the passes and lead the offense, he's kind of a Magic Johnson-ish kind of guy but with even more of a post presence.
"You see a point guard dunking on people the way he dunks on people, it's just comical almost."

Much like Robinson when he played in the NBA, Antetokounmpo can dominate both ends of the court as well as run like a gazelle on the court as Robinson did during his NBA career.

The Bucks own a 1-0 lead over former Spur Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors after beating Toronto 108-100 in Game 1 of the East Finals.

Antetokounmpo finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Bucks.
