Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo trolls himself with free-throw routine at championship parade
Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is having the absolute time of his life at the championship parade. He even took a moment to troll himself and his dismal free-throw shooting as the Bucks bus rolled through the crowd. Take a look:

Notice how long he took to actually shoot it? Yeah, that was the Greek Freak basically poking a shot at his lengthy procedure when at the charity stripe. While he won Finals MVP and a ring, Giannis struggled from the line during the playoffs, shooting just 57%. However, in the series-clinching Game 6 against the Phoenix Suns, the Bucks big man went an impressive 17 for 19.
He also dropped 50, which is very impressive in itself. Fans throughout the postseason would literally yell a shot-clock at him, but in the end, his productivity from the free-throw line didn’t hurt Milwaukee.
It’s all came full circle for Antetokounmpo, who joined the Bucks in 2013 as a raw, skinny talent out of Greece. Now, he’s an NBA champion and an absolute hero in the city of Milwaukee. In the finals alone, Giannis averaged over 30 points per game and was an absolute handful for a Phoenix team who was the favorite coming into this series.
Enjoy yourself Giannis. Two league MVPs, a Finals MVP, and an NBA title. You’re a true superstar.
