Giannis Antetokounmpo’s bold claim will make Novak Djokovic absolutely terrified
Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is having an absolutely enjoyable offseason. He has every right to. After winning his first NBA title, he’s allowed to do practically anything he wants. He can even replace Pope Francis for all we care.
After parading the Larry O’Brien Trophy around his home country of Greece and hanging out with his brothers, it appears Giannis has taken up a new hobby with his surplus of free time. On Twitter, he revealed he’s tried the extremely popular sport of paddle tennis.
The two-time MVP was so happy, he even made a joke about it. Watch out, Novak Djokovic! Or whoever the world no. 1 is in paddle tennis.
I just played paddle tennis 🎾 for the first time. You don’t want this smoke 💨🔥

To the inundated, which is probably all of us, paddle tennis is just like tennis but with a smaller court, a lower net, and no double lanes. Also, instead of a strung racquet, a solid paddle (which still looks like a racquet) is used. We’re not professional enough to explain it. Just kindly Google images to get a better idea of Giannis’ latest sport.
Maybe next time, Giannis could move up to tennis tennis. Athletes these days are very into crosstraining and tennis could help The Greek Freak with his stamina, strength, and endurance. After all, with the Bucks looking to defend their title, he will get even more banged up by defenders for sure.
According to oddsmakers, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the favorite to reclaim the MVP trophy this NBA season. It’s only a matter of time he rules the competitive world of paddle tennis as well.
