Several replays of the play reveal that Antetokounmpo’s move was clean and legal. But the view might have been different from the Raptors’ bench perspective. Or perhaps they were just simply trolling.
After all, the Greek Freak has made a living out of his vaunted Euro step move. Though there are many variants of it, his Euro step seems to cover more ground than it should. He has utilized his long strides and brute strength to do so. So far, not a single team has figured out a way to stop him. Even if you put two or three defenders in front of him, Antetokounmpo will always find a way.
Without a doubt, Antetokounmpo’s Euro-step will go down as one of the greatest moves in basketball. Just like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s skyhook or even James Harden’s step back.
