VIDEO: Jazz star Donovan Mitchell tries to posterize Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, Gets Denied
However, there’s one thing the Greek Freak made the Spider realize: you cannot possibly hope to get a slam in when there’s a seven-foot demigod guarding the rim.
The Bucks’ official Twitter account shared the ferocious rejection Giannis laid out on Mitchell.

To be fair, Mitchell did look like he was going to really slam it in. Confidence is just as important as vertical; you cannot hope to put a superstar on a poster if you don’t have the guts to risk rejection just to get that sweet slam in.
Giannis is just a physical specimen. He stands at seven feet with a long reach to match. It’s virtually impossible for Mitchell to get one over a player with physical specs like that.
Better luck next time, Spyda!
