I heard about this kid too. But I'm not calling him a greek Durant. He has promise, that's as far as it goes.

I didn't watch the full video, but I didn't see a single jumper.

Are there any vids of this guy that show more than full court drives off rebounds? I did a search on google with no results. He's got a good handle for a guy his size, good speed too, but I'm not seeing enough of his skill set. He's pretty skinny, even for a guy of the durant/prime KG mold.

The Greek Durant is ridiculous, he's got a nice skill set and athletic gifts but let's not call this guy a cross between Durant and T-mac :facepalm:

Too early to just come out and say "a cross between Durant and T-mac." See what happened to the Chinese Magic Johnson? lol

I've seen the guy play,about 5-6 games on TV and one time from his team's bench.
He plays in the second division of greece,but next year he is going to a spanish team.
He has 4 brothers,between 11-20 years old,all of them are very tall for their age.
This guy is the most hyped of them,but i dont see anything special on him.
His athleticism is elite for europe,and he handles the ball well,the league he plays is very low-level though.
Doesn't shoot the ball well.
He could be good in europe,nothing special in the nba.

Calling him next durant or tmac is beyond crazy.

there is also jonatahn barreiro 15 6,7 ( expected to 6,10) and playing Pg and people babbling about Mgic johnson.

But its too early too.

He doesnt seem to have the level of athleticism Durant has. He needs some time to mature. We need to see him play against NBA level competition before even trying to determine what kind of ceiling the kid has.

he was playing in a gym that resembles an 8th grade AAU gym. Not denying his potential skillset, lets see how he plays against real talent.

I'm an NJ bball coach so I know all about Towns.. He was unstoppable at St. Joe's.

This greek guy is nothing special. I saw his season stats were like 7ppg/5rpg/1apg on 44%fg/33% 3pt. Maybe he develops but for now he is nowhere near thread worthy.

He's already 6'10"...??? :D If he grows any taller he'll be a mix between Stockton/Bol's... :D (Sequester throw in)...

Is the Durant/T-Mac comparison because he's skinny and smooth...??? :D

You're ABSOLUTELY right, threads are very sacred and we must preserve them. It's not like we have an infinite amount, guys!

The guy looks like he's playing against the crappy intramural teams I played against in college. Nothing he did was that impressive and the fact that he doesn't have much in the way of stats is pretty poor. I dunno, maybe he can be something great, but there's tons of tall guys who can dunk on little unathletic guys.

I love this kid. Think he moved to Spain. His brother has potential too, but nothing close to Ioannis' ceiling imo.

Sorry for bringing this thread up,i just wanted to share that i watched him in a game yesterday,colangelo and the nuggets GM where sitting 10 metres away from me lol.
I read their comments later,and they both seem impressed.
For the record he had 33 points,18 reb,5 assists,4 steals.

I thought people were just making comparisions to KD cause they are both tall and could shoot but this guy's movement and motion seriously looks like Durant running the floor with the ball in his hand.

:laugh: You got me. My point is remains... if we're making threads for European players averaging 7-8ppg and a few assists... to me that's a little absurd.

Where is this guy projected to be drafted? No where. When is he coming over? Who knows?

You can't compare an over-hyped random European player to two guaranteed lottery picks. One of which had impressive moments on the Olympic stage. Be serious.
