Power Forward: Giannis Antetokounmpo
Antetokounmpo is listed as the power forward, but that’s basically meaningless. He’s the walking definition of positionless, as he can basically play anywhere and everywhere all at once. Most of his positioning depends on the players around him.
Just like last season, we’ll see Antetokounmpo defend centers, power forwards and wings while also initiating the offense, roaming the middle of the floor and cutting off other players. He can literally do it all.
In a perfect world, this is probably Antetokounmpo’s best position as it gives the Bucks the biggest advantage. He’s typically too quick for opposing power forwards and now too big and strong for other wings to defend him. This leaves the opposition in a tough position on who they should assign to defend Antetokounmpo.
