People always tell you not to make a big deal out of anything that happens in preseason, but I’ve seen enough from Giannis Antetokounmpo over the last couple of weeks to fall in love with his game.
First of all, he can nearly dunk without jumping. That’s pretty damn impressive, if you ask me. Secondly, he may have the biggest hands I’ve ever seen. I mean, who else can fit a Luke Ridnour in the palm of their hand? Thirdly, he’s actually good at basketball. That always helps. And finally, he can do the dougie better than any of us. Surely that’s enough for him to be your favorite rookie, too.
Hat tip to @ColePatty for finding this gem.
