The legend of Giannis Antetokounmpo grew in a 2017 NBA Playoff game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors. With the Raptors losing big in the postseason game, guard Normal Powell tried to sneak a layup in. Lurking behind him was the Greek Freak, who lived up to his nickname by jumping too high and rejecting the shot with his elbow.
Giannis rocked the low-top Kobe 10 with an engineered mesh upper for this crazy moment. The heel Zoom Air unit on the shoe provided a responsive bounce, while the Lunarlon used in the forefoot gave off softer cushioning.
