Giannis Antetokounmpo was recently voted the NBA's most improved player of 2017, so it only makes sense that he'd feature highly in this list. The 'Greek Freak' made the most of his physical attributes this year, enjoying his beast season in every statistical category (excluding his percentage from three point range).
Despite this, his Milwaukee Bucks were again knocked out of the playoffs at the same hurdle as last year - but Giannis' rapid improvement can only bode well for the future. He's emerged as far more than a novelty youngster, especially after sinking a crucial, dramatic game-winner against the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.
His 2K rating last year was 83, which will surely change come the new edition of the game.
