The "Greek Freak" Earns His Nickname


Since being drafted 15th overall by the Bucks three months ago, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been spending a significant amount of his time in Milwaukee training with Bucks coaches at the Cousins Center. Giannis has made it clear from the beginning that he wants to come in to the organization and contribute immediately, “I want to become one of the best players, so…you have to elevate all aspects of your game” said Antetokunmpo in a recent interview. Yesterday, Giannis posted a video to his Instagram account while training with coaches. In the video, the “Greek Freak” easily dunks a ball with his right arm while barely even elevating off the floor. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself:

There were never any doubts that Giannis, who at 6’9″ and 205 lbs boasts a 7’3″ wingspan, has incredible length and lankiness. But this video takes that to a mind-blowing level. The scary thing is that he’s only 18 years old, and may not even be finished growing. Let’s just hope Giannis’ freakish length translates well on the court.
