Atlanta Hawks: John Collins needs to emulate the strength of Giannis Antetkounmpo, the best power forward in the game.

While Giannis Antetokounmpo has some issues with his game, they are not many. This is shown by the fact that he is a two-time MVP and he also was the Finals MVP for the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2021 NBA championship.

In his eight seasons in the league, Antetokounmpo is a five-time All-Star, has been named to five different All-NBA teams and four different All-Defensive teams to go along with his 2019-20 Defensive Player of the Year award.

As mentioned earlier, Antetokounmpo has some weak points in his game, and they all revolve around his shooting. He is a poor free-throw shooter and does not have much of a jump shot, especially from behind the 3-point line.

He was able to overcome these limitations to become the best player on the planet for two seasons and then an NBA champion not long after that by playing to his strengths. This is what Collins needs to do in order to become the best power forward in the league. It is unlikely that he will get there but the sky is the limit for Collins and who is going to tell him that he can’t do it.
