Watch out, Giannis Antetokounmpo is once again on the loose. In the first quarter of the Milwaukee Bucks' game against the San Antonio Spurs, The Greek Freak showed off his, well, freakish athleticism with a windmill throwdown in transition.

Antetokounmpo picked off a pass from Spurs guard Bryn Forbes and broke free from the pack. He had a clear runway to the basket to give him the opportunity to put on a show for the crowd at the Fiserv Forum. In addition, he only needed five steps to make his move from half court. The dunk gave the Bucks a 10-point lead half way through the first period.
When GiannisAntetokounmpo gets loose on the fast break, be ready for a highlight reel. It's crazy to think how a guy with his size can pull off these kinds of plays on the open floor. The two-time All-Star is truly one of the NBA's unicorns. Despite his 6-foot-11, 240-pound frame, Giannis still has the dribbling skills of a guard.
Moreover, it seems like his already-massive height can prevent him from making complicated dunks like the windmill, which needs a certain amount of hang time to pull off. Despite this, the Bucks superstar still has enough hops to throw down the windmill with his long limbs.
