Giannis Antetokounmpo is called the ‘Greek Freak’ for a valid reason. His Greek origin, that 6’11” height, the weight around 240 lbs, and the out-of-the-world ball-handling skills make him a freak on the court. This man received the Most Improved Player award in the NBA in 2017 and has only been improving to touch greater heights ever since.
At times, he ‘literally’ can touch those greater heights which many other players simply can’t. During their loss against the Rockets in the Orlando bubble season restart game, we got a proof of this.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and his freaky reach!
It was a rebound that was coming Giannis’ way, and the rest was just his swagger. Rockets guard James Harden contributed 24 points in the game, with seven rebounds but absolutely failed here. Watch it for yourself!
A 6’5” Harden against Giannis could not have done much. “Umm just wait for it to come to me”, the commentator explained exactly how Giannis must be thinking. Giannis and Khris Middleton scored 36 & 27 points with 18 & 12 rebounds respectively to put in a magnificent effort.
The Greek Freak has done this time and again!
Last year, playing against the Detroit Pistons, Giannis put a poster with such a force, it appeared as if he will cause an earthquake so to speak. The Bucks won that game 121-98 completely demolishing the Pistons.
In the same series, have a look at this double-clutch dunk which he made it look so simple, while it wasn’t. It took him an insane ‘two dribbles’ to take the ball from way behind the half-court and then complete a two-handed dunk. One can question and say that he traveled, but he got the points on the chart, and that is all that matters. Have a look at this killer move!
In that game, too, the Bucks beat the Miami Heat 116-108 with Giannis scoring 19 points.
This man is something else. His dunks are just too good and dunking on opponents kind of gives him a rush. This may seem a pretty unfair to other players, but we all know players like Stephen Curry who have done it all at 6’3”.
The Milwaukee Bucks will now face the Brooklyn Nets on August 4th at 1:30 PM ET.
