Dominating the paint

Unlike other players who have dominated the paint, Giannis often catches the ball outside the paint, drives in on his own before finishing with an always impressive dunk over whoever is guarding him. We have never seen a player like this. I think what distinguishes him other than strength is his speed and finesse. Not every player has the body control he does, not many of them can replicate his speed while keeping in control. Giannis is a beast - the kind that we've never seen before.

While new players like Zion are coming in with seemingly similar physical capabilities, I would argue that not everyone, even with Giannis's genetics, would able to become basketball players as good as he is. With a reputation for being humble and working hard, all I can say is I hope to see more from Giannis, as his game slowly expands.
