While we don’t condone elder abuse, Giannis Antetokounmpo puts Vince Carter through the ringer on this highlight.
The Greek Freak had VC on the switch and instantly called a play. Giannis eventually drove right after a false screen from Bucks teammate Wesley Matthews. The momentum of the drive flung Carter back under the rim, making him an easy poster target. Antetokounmpo flew above the rim uncontested, throwing down a dunk over Carter. Vinsanity was shook and just backpedaled, while Giannis mean-mugged him heading back up the court.
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, similar to the midsole on the Kyrie signature line. 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 white and multicolor PE for this moment, but you can find other colors at StockX, Stadium Goods, and GOAT.
