Giannis Antetokounmpo received high praise from the head coach of the Dallas Mavericks Rick Carlisle.

Carlisle called Antetokounmpo a ‘unique player’ that can do everything on both ends of the floor.

“He’s really such a unique player. We have not seen a player like him really in the history of the game. You know at 6’10, 6’11, doing the things he does on a full court basis.

Defensively, guarding every position on the floor, et cetera, et cetera. So you know he’s just great that’s all I can say,” Carlisle told reporters, via the Bucks’ Twitter account.

Antetokounmpo had 31 points and nine rebounds, as the Bucks defeated the Mavs at home (109-112).
