Giannis Antetokounmpo Teases Release Of His New Signature Shoe

Giannis Antetokounmpo Teases Release Of His New Signature Shoe

Giannis Antetokounmpo is arguably the best player in the NBA right now. The Greek Freak got the proverbial monkey off his back by leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a championship last year as he put on some otherworldly displays in the postseason and in the NBA Finals, in particular. He looked set to do it again this past season, but with Khris Middleton ruled out for the entirety of the second round against the Celtics, the defending champions fell in 7 games to the eventual Eastern Conference champs.

Giannis has put that disappointment behind him and has been having some fun this offseason while cracking some dad jokes along the way. In some actual significant news though, he gave an update that his new signature shoe, the Nike Zoom Freak 4, is going to be coming out soon.

Nike had revealed the first look for the shoe last month as they celebrated the release of ‘Rise’ a movie detailing Giannis and his brothers' journey to the NBA. He also shared a special message at the premier of the movie to show just how far the trio had come. It is truly remarkable to see all that he has accomplished considering his humble origins, winning 2 MVPs, a Defensive Player of the Year, and of course, a championship and Finals MVP last year.

He was once laughed at by reporters for saying he wanted to win MVP at some point and he now has a resume through the first 9 seasons of his career that only Michael Jordan can match, which is saying something. Expect Giannis to come out with a vengeance next season as he continues his quest to win another NBA title, and he is going to do so in his brand-new Nike Zoom Freak 4s. The rest of the league better brace themselves.
