Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard

Hopefully MKG's offensive game will at least reach Leonard is now.

His jumper is broken though, like honestly he needs to completely reconstruct his jumper if he wants to get to be at kawhis offensive level

I really can't wait for MKG to prove people wrong.

 

Problem is that you will probably STILL be waiting 5 seasons from now.

 

Guy has little to no offensive game and one of the ugliest jump shots I have ever seen.

Not true. He is a good ball handler, passer slasher and finisher at the rim. All of this is part of offense. So him not having any offensive game is false.

Hopefully MKG will make a huge jump in offensive production next season.

This. If he ever develops a jumper, he will be a top 15 player in the league.

I dont think MKG will ever have a jumper(not in the next two seasons anyway)

He could just work on other things like a floater in the lane and just be aggressive on the baseline like a young Shawn Marion. Just have more confidence in being a playmaker and he has the other intangibles you want in a wing.

He just has to be a threat while on offense. I thought he found it in the that one playoff game but was disappointed he did not replicate that.

I was checking out DraftExpress's mock draft today and they have Giannis's brother Thanasis going 60th overall to San Antonio.

 

For those that aren't familiar with Thanasis, Thanasis is the older brother of Giannis a.k.a. The Greek Freak 2.0.

 

Thanasis spent this past season in the U.S. opting to play in the NBADL with the Deleware 87ers instead of continuing his career in Greece. Thanasis played in 50 games averaging nearly 30 minutes a game. Thanasis' averages are as followed...

 

Points: 12.0

Rebounds: 4.3

Assists: 2.1

Blocks: 1.3

Steals: 1.2

 

While Thanasis doesn't posses the hype that Giannis did/does, Thanasis is a solid prospect and actually is similar to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Thanasis is known for his defense and his hustle plays and like MKG he struggles on the offensive end but overall has a much more polished offensive game and may just need to be coached up.

 

Thanasis tends to struggle with his mechanics when shooting the basketball and his mechanics are often inconsistent. Thanasis also tends to shoot the ball on the way down and changes his release points, he also shoots below 30% from the three point line.

 

Overall, Thanasis is an intriguing prospect and with a shooting coach like Mark Price; he could possibly become a solid 6th or 7th man and be what Jeff Taylor was supposed to be for Charlotte.

 

If I had to pick an NBA Comparison for Thanasis, it would probably be Andre Iguodala

After seeing that video Id take him in the first! He would be the most talented wing on the roster...Taylor with a torn achillies is not promising imo. Hate that he Jeff Taylor had a great season lining up for him and a horrible injury like that happens.

Marion is a good comparison, came into the league with no jumper but still contributed on offense while truly shining on defense.  And if he could make his ugly ass jump shot work than there is still hope for MKG
