VIDEO: Giannis Antetokounmpo with a fun dunk against Lithuania
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing for Greece in the FIBA World Cup and has a fun dunk in the exhibition against Lithuania.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo kind of gets treated like a puppy or a toddler. Since the internet loves his personality and his game so much, we tend to overhype what he does on a basketball court as "great" no matter how basic the play was. It's just weird seeing a 6'11" guy who is all limbs doing shooting guard type of plays, so perhaps it's the optical illusion he provides on the court adding to the entertainment of each play he completes.
While playing for Greece in the warm-ups to the FIBA World Cup in Spain at the end of this month, Antetokounmpo took the pass in the middle of the floor on a fast break, went up for the two-handed dunk, and swung around on the rim to ensure he'd land safely. Lithuanian forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas gave a soft attempt at trying to block the dunk, but never really got that into the picture.
I'm not sure this was a great dunk but it certainly was fun.
