The best kept secret that was Giannis Antetokounmpo was finally revealed in 2017, when the Greek Freak made his first NBA All-Star game. Giannis drew the oohs and aahs in the third quarter after gathering a lob from Kyrie Irving and crushing the rim over Steph Curry. The ball naturally bounced off the extended Curry on the poster dunk.
A few plays later, Giannis stripped James Harden with Steph Curry the only man standing between Antetokounmpo and the rim. Curry comically laid on his stomach and ducked for cover, cowering as the Greek Freak threw down an effortless windmill jam.
Giannis rocked the low-top Kobe 10 with an engineered mesh upper for this national game. The heel Zoom Air unit on the shoe provided a responsive bounce, while the Lunarlon used in the forefoot gave off softer cushioning.
