Add another big-man on the posterization list at the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo, as the Detroit Pistons’ Jon Leuer jumped when he shouldn’t have.
The Greek Freak took a simple screen from Bucks teammate George Hill and charged towards the rim practically unimpeded. Leuer tried to recover by sliding over for the block, but Giannis was already airborne before Jon got up. Giannis put extra oomph on his jam by cocking back his right arm, as Leuer went vertical with both hands. BAM! January 1st was not a Happy New Year for Jon, as he struggled to land on both feet after he got yammed on.
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.
