No way. This guy transferred to a U.S high school for a reason. He wants to play in the NBA.

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.

He's not "staying overseas". He's on a contract that maintains his amateur status, even with playing for a Euroleague team.

He's in talks right now with about 15 different NCAA schools. He's 50/50 going to play a year in the NCAA, then go to the NBA, or stay one year in Greece, and then go to the NBA.

His contract with Panathinaikos even stipulates an option for immediate release with no real buyout restrictions upon being drafted, and they said the only way he was staying there was if he was not drafted.

So you are just making up bullshit - as usual.

Yes, that's right. The reason he decided not to stay in the US for his senior year of high school basketball was because the competition was so much lower than he had been getting being able to train in the Greek League the previous two years.

So his father decided to have him go back to the Greek League, especially since he got to sign with an actual Euroleague team (highest level in Europe) and he could then get much higher training, coaching, and play against much better players than in high school in USA for a year.

His father felt his game actually regressed last year in the USA playing against high school players, instead of professional players.

And so then he would be better prepared to play in NCAA next season, than if he stayed in high school. Their main plan has always seemed to be that they want him to play in NCAA for a year. And from what I know a lot of schools are going after him very hard.

Papagiannis is the most amazing physical specimen of a prospect that I've seen since rookie NBA Shaq.

7'1 with a 38' vert would mean he gets his head 3 inches over the rim. None of the clips show anything remotely close to even mid 20's capabilities, so even if he has that massive vert, what good is it that he can barely apply a fraction of it in actual games?

Watching Papagiannis play in the first game of FIBA World Under-19 Championship, he looked about 1, maybe even 2 inches taller than his teammate Georgios Tsalmpouris.

Tsalmpouris plays at Iowa State, and he's listed at 7-1 by them, and he was supposedly measured at 7-1 1/2 in shoes.

Papagiannis looks like he's at least 7-2, and maybe even 7-3 now.

That's funny, because he had so many lob dunk type slams in the first game of FIBA Under-19 World Championship that I lost count.

Not a single player on Team USA can get even close to as high as he can.

He was dunking absolutely everything that even came near his vicinity.

No way. He's not even better than guys like Ben Simmons and Jaylen Brown.
