Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the most dominant players in the NBA. A 2x MVP, 5x All-NBA player, and 1x Champion, he's done it all at just 26-years-old.
Usually, stars of his caliber will have haters lined up to see him fail. It's the case with guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry.
But Giannis, for as good as he is, is also impossible to hate. Seriously the dude is as wholesome as they get, and a recent clip of him in Bucks practice served as the perfect reminder of that fact.
The clip, which made waves on the internet, started with him joking about having to extend his range.
“I'm getting old, I gotta start shooting it now. I'm not 25 no more, I'm 26 now…
It then transitioned to him goofing off and joking with his teammates, who all seem to love the guy.
"I hate you, man. Nah, hate is a strong word. I strongly dislike you. I don't hate you, I just dislike you. I strongly.”
Overall, Giannis is a pretty awesome character and always has a smile on his face.
Oh man, I feel so good... We won. We won, oh my god! Oh my goodness. I thought we were tanking, I thought were tanking for the number one pick. Phew!
No doubt, after years of fighting for a Championship, reaching that goal in 2021 has lifted an enormous weight off his shoulders.
And while the hunger to win is still there, he no longer has to deal with the pressure that comes with being an A-list superstar without a ring.
This season, the Bucks haven't exactly lived up to expectations, and it's clear the Bucks have some work to do if they were to successfully defend their throne.
Byt the vibe throughout the organization couldn't be better, and Giannis has been leading it all.
