Howard Beck: And here was John Hammond discussing Bucks’ point-guard situation, with Giannis taking on more playmaking: Is Giannis the point guard? MCW? John Hammond: It was kind of Jason’s vision all along to kind of say how much can he do that? How capable is he of doing something like this? To be honest with you, when Michael Carter-Williams went down this year and had hip surgery, Jason put Giannis on the ball and said go ahead and run the team. And he had great success in doing that. It turned out to be a great opportunity for us as an organization and puts us in a position to be a really fun team to watch with Giannis as one of the primary ball-handlers… There’s a delicate balance. Someone’s gotta guard the point guard, and that’s not gonna be Giannis… Michael has done a very good job for us. When we acquired him, he was one of the guys that led us into the playoffs… We’re going to need him moving forward. Michael has a chance to be one of the top-10 type players at his position… on the defensive end of the floor, with his length, with his speed, with his quickness.
