Giannis was about the 10th best player on a team in the THIRD division in Greece when he was 17.

He also tried out for Olympiacos' roster (a first division team in Greece) when he was 18 and failed to make the team.

So yes, Papagiannis is a FAR BETTER and MORE ADVANCED player at the same age.

By leaps and bounds.
