Giannis Antetokuonmpo has been taking some flak on social media on how he selected his teammates but if you think of it, if the Greek Freak will centerpiece himself, this is a good team to surround him. The starters were Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Kemba Walker and Trae Young. The reserves were Khris Middleton, Bam Adebayo, Rudy Gobert, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Brandon Ingram and Donovan Mitchell. Giannis is the only player that cracked the top 10 in the scoring leaders for this season but he has some interesting defensive stalwarts in Rudy Gobert, Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler in the team.
