VIDEO: Giannis Antetokounmpo shows off dance moves to distract Russell Westbrook
With money for their chosen charities up for grabs, Team Giannis and Team LeBron figured in an intense NBA All-Star Game on Sunday at United Center. So much so, that Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has decided to do whatever it takes to distract their opponents from scoring.
With 12.4 ticks remaining in a tight third period for both teams, Team LeBron’s Russell Westbrook went to the line to shoot free-throws.
The Greek Freak, who was not fielded in the game at the time, stood under the basket in a bid to get Westbrook’s attention. The reigning MVP showed off his best “Woah” dance move. His ploy did not work, as Westbrook drained the free throw.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s antics, of course, would have been an automatic technical foul in a regular season game, but not during the festive All-Star game.

Both teams were tied at 41 apiece in the penultimate quarter.
This year’s iteration of the NBA All-Star game has been as competitive as ever, as the league implemented a new format for the All-Star game in honor of the late basketball icon Kobe Bryant.
