Greek Freak GOD
Written by SwagPete
This card is absolutely amazing. Its amazing because it can be used in so many ways, just like the ruby Giannis. It is extremely cheesy. I think this is the cheesiest amethyst player in 2k. I've played 6 games with Amy Giannis and he's averaging 23.8 pts, 7.8 reb, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 blocks at Point Guard.
Bought for: 125k MT, Sniped for 80k MT.
Strengths: Scoring: Crazy finisher inside, Giannis will put up a strong layup or dunk. Also has a 97 draw foul, making it easy free throw opportunities. Has a 90 free throw so he won't miss often. A great mid-range game, with a 94 open mid and a 90 moving and contested mid. Has a decent 78 3pt shot so he will hit threes more occasionally now.
Defense: Great perimeter defender and can defend any position. From Point Guard to Center, Giannis is capable of containing his defender. Also has a 92 steal, will steal easy passes in the lane for a fast break finish. Has an exceptional 83 block, meaning he can block smaller defenders with ease.
Athleticism: Very quick on the court, especially for his size. Most people his size won't keep up with him. Also has a 90 acceleration and a 95 stamina and hustle. Expect Giannis to be all around the court. Has a decent 89 durability, so he can withstand many minutes on the floor.
Playmaking: An amazing playmaker. One of the top small forward playmakers in the game. Giannis has an 85 ball control, an 81 passing accuracy, a 88 Passing IQ and a staggering 89 speed with ball. The Greek Freak's playmaking is on point, better than some point guards.
Weaknesses: Post: Only has a 52 post control, 42 post hook and a 53 post fadeaway. Besides this, there is no other weakness I have with the Greek Freak.
Recommended Strategy: Try to score any way you can with Giannis, it has a good chance of going in. Defend any position you want Giannis to defend.
Use if: You want an all-around superstar on your team that can do anything you want.
Don't use if: If you want a spot-up shooter.
Bottom Line: An absolute beast on the court. One of the best amethyst small forwards in the game so far.
