Video: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo gets Solomon Hill, Jaren Jackson Jr. to bite for the fake, then throws it down
Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is used to highlight dunks, but this time around he made fools out of Memphis Grizzlies forwards Solomon Hill and Jaren Jackson Jr. before wiggling his way to the basket for the slam (via Dime).
Giannis … YUP.

The 25-year-old reigning NBA MVP is having arguably an even better season this year, leading the Bucks to the top of the Eastern Conference standings a quarter of the way through 2019-20. Milwaukee came up short in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals—losing in six games to eventual-champion Toronto Raptors—but many predict the Bucks to advance and the three-time All-Star “Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo to reach his first Finals in the next postseason with the Raptors losing Kawhi Leonard in free agency.
While the Grizzlies are content with rebuilding around young players like the 2019 draft’s second overall pick point guard Ja Morant and last year’s lottery selection in Jackson Jr., in the meantime they have to suffer blows like Antetokounmpo’s unfair wingspan and silly dunks.
