2017 Giannis Antetokounmpo’s

Written by 22rshirk

Just like that, it’s the end of another 2k. We now have packs that are giving out guaranteed galaxy opals. Not to mention these are most likely the final packs for 2k20.

Bought for: 6,000 MT (most opals are very cheap at the moment!)

Strengths:

  • speed boosting: this card will speed boast out of things such as stepbacks and pull backs.

  • Gets past AIs with ease. Even players struggle to guard him.

  • takes the ball up court (in tto even though he plays as my big. I’m not sure if that’s the case for unlimited)

  • height: smaller players struggle to guard him. My Dino Radja struggled to keep with him and couldn’t even snag a board over him.

Weaknesses:

  • slow release- you can’t do a step back into an easy three like you could an Anthony Edwards. (But he’ll still hit a wide open shot)

Recommended Strategy: have fun with this card. He’s extremely cheesy and can get past pretty much anybody. If you do want to play competitively maybe do a 5 out play with him. I know the bucks playbook has a 5 out play.

Other Comments: reminds me of Giannis from back in the day. This card is extremely cheesy. Even the pink diamond Giannis’ of this year can’t really finish in traffic or get the rim (like they used too). But this card, this card right here brings back the feeling of 2k17

Use if: you want a speed boosting center

Don't use if: you want a spot up shooter
