Is the Greek Freak getting you excited about Bucks Season? #HullYes or #HullNo

With a little over a week away from the start of the 2013 NBA Season, the Milwaukee Bucks have caught some buzz around the NBA.  No, it's not a "Championship Contender Buzz," but that of an individual who has caught people's eyes this preseason.

When the Bucks took Giannis Antetokounmpo with the 15th pick in this past June's draft, initial reaction was not great for an 18 year-old foreign player that no one could pronounce (and still can't) his name. However, has time has gone on the the thought that in 4-years, he could be the best of the 2013 class, people started catching on.

Now, as the season is right around the corner, the hype is growing:

- The Bucks recently created a twitter account that informs people when the "Greek Freak" is in the game.
- Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report wrote he could be the biggest surprise among rookies.
- Andrew Sharp of Grantland wrote about him Monday.
- Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk showed the world his enormous hands.

So now I ask you, has Giannis added to your excitement for the 2013-2014 Bucks who open the season October 30th in New York?  #HullYes or #HullNo
