BIOGRAPHY

Giannis Antetokounmpo currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Born on December 06, 1994 in Athens, Greece, the talented big man is listed at 6' 11" and weighs 242 lbs. A good combination for him, as his athleticism and power goes well with the frame he’s been gifted. 

Antetokounmpo went to high school, as do plenty of teenagers, but college was never in the cards for the young man. He was simply too talented to play basketball for free.

Eventually his decision paid off, as he was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Originally considered a raw project when entering the NBA, Giannis Antetokounmpo has proved to be so much more. While not exactly known for his jumper, The Greak Freak is an unstoppable force when attacking the rim. Moreover, he can guard multiple positions and create general havoc with his size combined with his insane athleticism. 

Ever since establishing himself as a star, Giannis Antetokounmpo constantly finds himself in trade and free agency rumors, as some fans refuse to allow a talent of his stature to apply his trade in a market outside the NBA’s top five. 

During his NBA career he has played for the Milwaukee Bucks since 2013.
