Who Were the Players Drafted Before Giannis During the 2013 Rookie Draft?

Giannis Antetokounmpo  recently visited the Philippines and we were surprised about the number of people who showed up on his event. It was full packed!

He has emerged as one of the big names in the NBA and is now on the verge of becoming more and more popular.  Giannis the 6'11 forward from Greece had a great season last year winning the Most Improved Player award. A lot of eyes are on him now especially as he became the face of the Milwaukee Bucks.

But before the popularity in the NBA, he was just another player from Europe. While a lot of teams saw potential in him, not everyone was willing to risk. Fast forward today, all of those teams who passed on him are now shaking their heads as he has emerged to be the best player in his class.
