Put the Giannis stank face in the Louvre after this vicious play from the Greek Freak.
On this play, Milwaukee Bucks teammate Khris Middleton drove down the lane drawing a Philadelphia Sixers double team. He then threw up either a lob that was too high or an off-balanced floater. Antetokounmpo was going to go up for the ball but thought better of it and waited for the carom. The rock bounced off the backboard then rim, before Giannis rammed down a right-handed putback dunk. The Fiserv Forum had Antetokounmpo so hyped, he showcased his famous Giannis stank face.
The Nike Zoom Freak 1 that Giannis rocked was designed with Giannis’ rangy movements in mind, with multidirectional traction being particularly aggressive at the pinky toe section. The traction extends up in this area with rubber clips. This was done up to aid with Antetokounmpo’s extremely long-striding euro steps, providing control when Giannis goes side to side. Further performance features include two stacked Zoom Air units in the heel for extra bounce when landing.
Giannis rocked a teal blue and gold PE for this moment, but you can find other colors at Dick’s Sporting Goods, StockX, Stadium Goods, and GOAT.
