Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s ‘best dunk’ revelation won’t sit well with Jimmy Butler
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has been around the league long enough to have witnessed some unforgettable moments. The former back-to-back MVP recently talked about one of his favorite dunks of all-time and unfortunately for him, Miami Heat talisman Jimmy Butler was on the wrong end of it.
Giannis relived what he revealed to be his favorite Khris Middleton dunk. This turned out to be Middleton’s poster on Butler some six years ago. The dunk was so memorable that it still lingers in Giannis’ memory to this very day (h/t Milwaukee Bucks on Twitter):
“The best dunk Khris has ever made was on Jimmy Butler,” Giannis said.”Yeah, that’s crazy. Go Google it. It was like six years ago.”
Which Khris dunk lives rent-free in Giannis' mind?

As you may have seen in the clip above, Middleton absolutely posterized Jimmy Butler in that particular play. Butler was still with the Chicago Bulls at that time, which now feels like a lifetime away. Nevertheless, Giannis still remembers it like it happened yesterday.
Incidentally, Giannis and the Bucks square off against Butler’s Heat on Saturday night. I hope Butler comes across this clip before they face off on the basketball as this would add some extra spice to what is already a highly-anticipated matchup between two of the top teams in the East.
