Video: Giannis Antetokounmpo only needed one dribble from half court to get to the basket
Since entering the league back in 2013, Giannis Antetokounmpo has continued to leave a lot of fans in awe of how athletic he is, and with the highlight reel plays he pulls off. On Monday, he completed another one versus the Boston Celtics, which can be considered hard to believe until he made it.
Given his length and huge strides whenever he runs full speed, The Greek Freak showed that he only needed one dribble from the halfcourt line to finish a layup. The crowd inside TD Garden were buzzing about what they saw, and also the broadcasters, who were very impressed with the play.
