Picture Michael Jordan’s iconic switching hands layup. Now replace MJ with a 7’3″ wingspan Greek dude dropping a no-look dime instead. This is what happened early in the 2018-19 season, with Giannis Antetokounmpo making magic on the court against the Philadelphia 76ers. On this play early in the 4th quarter, Giannis was driving as he always does and jumped too early. Even with the long reach, Giannis was too far from the hoop. As he was falling down, the Greek Freak gathered with both hands and zipped a no-look pass to teammate Tony Snell for the trifecta.
Antetokounmpo’s footwear of choice this game was the Nike Kobe AD, the latest in the line of Bryant sneakers with the same name (this version released in 2018.) This low-top shoe features a mesh bootie construction, with bouncy Zoom Air in the heel. The flatness of the sole and internal-external heel counters add further support to the wearer.
