Frank Mason III says Giannis Antetokounmpo is a ‘7-foot bully on the court’

Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks combo guard Frank Mason III says MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is a “7-foot bully on the court.”

Mason III, who signed a two-way contract with the Bucks in July, has been training with Antetokounmpo this summer and says he’s blown away by what The Greek Freak can do on the basketball court.

“I got a chance to work out with him and play one-on-one with him in Las Vegas during Summer League,” Mason said, via Matt Tait of KuSports. “It was pretty big time. We did a lot of one-on-one, a lot of skill work, and also worked out with Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton and it was a good time. We all got better and just watching him live and watching his work ethic was unbelievable. I’m just excited to be a part of the team and to get to play with a guy like that.

“(Giannis is a) 7-foot bully on the court. He’s unstoppable in transition, he’s almost automatic around the rim, he super coachable and he’s humble. I’m excited to play with him and he should make my job a lot easier.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo averaged 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game this past season while shooting 57.8 percent from the floor and 72.9 percent from the free-throw line. Milwaukee won 60 games and had the best record in the league.

Antetokounmpo is only going to get better and that’s a really scary sight for the NBA. Once the Bucks superstar develops a consistent jump shot, he will become the best player in the NBA by a wide-margin.
