If you are wondering why Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is called the "Greek Freak," it's because he is from Greece and he is an otherworldly athletic specimen. With the height of a center (he stands 6-foot-11) and the speed of a guard, this guy makes incredible plays—like the one he made in a Dec. 29 game against the OKC Thunder.
After a Thunder miss, an outlet pass from Bucks point guard Michael Carter Williams found the Greek Freak at half court running full speed. Once he received the pass, Anteokounmpro needed only one dribble to make it to the hoop. One dribble! Talk about breakaway speed! No one could have caught him. Did he travel? Not in the NBA.
Antetokounmpro finished the night with an impressive 27 points, 10 rebounds and one transcendent breakaway slam. Watch it below:
