Giannis Antetokounmpo has dunks for days and if he played in the 80s and 90s his poster would be a must have for hoops heads and fans of the throwdown. Instead, we get to see his feats on video instantaneously around the world on social media, which is even better.
In an NBA that is increasingly focused on perimeter play, the Greek Freak is a human highlight film. He still goes hard in the paint and has wise men ducking for cover when he comes through. Foolish mortals getting plastered onto the hardwood by the force of the NBAs most prolific in-game dunker. The stuff he does, Dr. J couldn’t even explain and neither could we.
So here are The Greek Freak’s Top 5 Freakish Moments In The League So Far
1. Baynes’ Soul Leaves His Body
This thunderous dunk against the Celtics not only posterized the 6-foot-10 Aron Baynes, but almost decapitated him and broke his back. This dunk from October 2017 is the No. 1 dunk on the list and one for the most vicious you will ever see.

2. The Freak Vs The Cavs
Greek Freaks most recent jaw-dropping dunk occurred in a Monday night loss to the Cavs. Giannis used his long arms to snatch a poorly-thrown alley-oop that was headed for out of bounds and one-hand dunked it over Jeff Green and an onlooking LeBron James, who wanted no part of that action.

3. The Freak Embarrasses Tim Hardaway
Many brave ballers have tried and all have failed when it comes to stopping Greek Freak on a breakaway score. Its akin to trying to stop an explosion from going off with your pinky finger. Embarrassment is usually the result. Just ask Knicks player Tim Hardaway who was wearing Greek Freaks jockstrap on his dome after this Madison Square Garden introduction back in February.
