Antetokounmpo, newcomer Bledsoe lead Bucks into Dallas

DALLAS -- There is plenty of talk in Dallas these days rehashing the decision Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made in the 2013 draft to bypass Giannis Antetokounmpo as a means to protect salary cap space to go after then-free agent Dwight Howard.

Dallas traded down and eventually drafted guard Shane Larkin. On Saturday night, Cuban will get a front-row view of the "Greek Freak," a player his franchise -- and, frankly, a slew of others -- could have had. Antetokounmpo was the 15th overall pick in the 2013 draft.

Now Cuban's last-place Mavs (2-14) will see a blossoming superstar, a 6-foot-11 athletic marvel that the popular hoops statistical website Basketball-Reference.com lists as a power forward, small forward, shooting guard and point guard.
