Bucks, Mavs heading in different directions

Over the past several years, as the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo has grown into an All-Star befitting his "Greek Freak" nickname, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has taken on considerable criticism for not nabbing the then-teenager with mad skills in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Dallas had the No. 13 pick in that draft and traded it. The Bucks took Antetokounmpo with the No. 15 selection.

Cuban has acknowledged telling president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson not to select the 6-foot-11 forward with guard-like skills in order to save salary-cap space to pursue top-line free agents. That plan never materialized, and Mavs fans have been left to wonder, "What if?"
