Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo plays ‘caption this’ with his own meme-worthy photo

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks had a little fun with his photo from the game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday. Perhaps the two-time MVP recognized that his photo is pretty meme-worthy.

Below is the actual play as captured by a fan. Antetokounmpo got fouled and completed the and-one for the Bucks. So Giannis may not have seen his bae, but did make a great play for his team.

Antetokounmpo had all the reasons to be happy as his Bucks won against the Grizzlies, 112-111.

It was a tight game right up until the very end. Ja Morant seemed to have won it for the Grizzlies after a fearless lay-up. But Jrue Holiday saved the day for the Bucks with a cold step-back jumper which became the game-winner.

After the game, Holiday shared what his headspace was like before he knocked down the big shot for the Bucks.

“I was the first one down the court, so … it was pretty much me and (Grizzlies forward) Dillon Brooks,” Holiday said about the winning play for the Bucks, per the Associated Press via ESPN. “I just took the opportunity. I thought I made a nice play and knocked down the shot.”

The Bucks have now won six of their last 10 games heading into the All-Star break. They’re sitting at the third spot in the East behind the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets.

While this isn’t exactly their ideal spot, considering that they’ve ruled the East for the last two years, the Bucks seem to be pleased with their playstyle now. Antetokounmpo even noted that he likes the fact that his team is displaying their capacity to close out tight games.
