The picture has been making the rounds lately and because it's a Sunday, it seemed like a fun way to kill a little time. I decided to show a couple of examples of just how big his hands are by putting them next to accurately scaled items.

For example, his hand is the size of three regulation NBA basketballs:

He can hold up to four Wendy's baconator burgers:

He can hold 11 of the 13 letters in his last name:

And one hand is also the same size as one whole Luke Ridnour, Giannis' teammate:
