Giannis is gold. I mean, how can you not root for this man?
Antetokounmpo also revealed the history of when he first had lemon pepper wings. With the way he devoured the chicken as he faced the media, it’s safe to the 2-time MVP is a huge fan.
Antetokounmpo had every reason to smile heading into the All-Star break. The Bucks ended the first half of their 2020-21 campaign on a positive note, with Giannis dropping a near triple-double with 26 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists. While the Greek superstar spearheaded the ship for most of the night, it was Jrue Holiday who lifted Milwaukee to the 1-point win after he made the game-winner with two seconds to go.
To add to his joy, Antetokunmpo also learned during the presser that LeBron James selected him no. 1 overall in the 2021 NBA All-Star draft. He also found out the starting lineup that he would team up with in the All-Star game, which features arguably the most elite five that you can get in the NBA. Aside from The King, of course, Giannis will also share first five honors with Steph Curry, Luka Doncic, and Nikola Jokic.
