Giannis Antetokounmpo, Greece

If any current player can pretend to approach the Nowtizki-Olajuwon tier for international players, it’s Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Still just 23 years old, the player affectionately known as the Greek Freak already has two All-Star berths under his belt, as well as one All-NBA appearance.

This year, Antetokounmpo has taken his game to another level.

The 6-foot-11 wing is presently averaging an obscene 27.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks per contest. If you look up the other players in league history to put up at least 27/10/4 for an entire season, you’ll find names like Kareem Abdul-JabbarWilt Chamberlain and Oscar Robertson littering the list.

Health provided, if the Bucks forward maintains his current trajectory, he could wind up a multiple-time MVP winner, and one of the best non-domestic players of all time.
