GIF: Giannis Antetokounmpo Flushes It On Shawne Williams — Plus The Foul

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee’s young stud Giannis Antetokounmpo, a.k.a. “The Greek Freak,” is a bit of an anomaly as a player. At 6-11, the 19-year-old forward/guard hybrid has the length and wingspan of a big, the athleticism of a wing, and the handle of a point guard. More often than not, he is a nightmare for opponents to match up against, and his growing game is an absolute pleasure for fans to watch, especially when he attacks the rim. Read More »

After Andrew Wiggins played the best game of his young career on Wednesday, we forecasted that similar success for Jabari Parker would soon follow. It feels good to be right. In the Milwaukee Bucks’ 98-95 loss to the Detroit Pistons last night, Parker scored a season-high 18 points (8-14 FGs) and grabbed eight rebounds, showing off the polished offensive play that’s been hard to come by in the first few games of his rookie career.

Video: Larry Sanders Block Leads To Greek Freak Oop

Larry Sanders, Taj Gibson

Good defense leads to easy offense. That’s a mantra repeated by many coaches, but it’s true. The more turnovers a team can force, or blocked shots on the back end, the faster you can get out on the break. The Bucks proved it last night when Larry Sanders snuffed Taj Gibson against the backboard and Brandon Knight ended up tossing an alley-oop to Giannis “Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo. Read More »

Jason Kidd Challenges Nets Owner To Game Of 1-On-1

Jason Kidd, Giannis Antetokounmpo

Earlier this week Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov sounded off on his former coach Jason Kidd in a highly entertaining chat with reporters. The Russian tycoon relayed the proverb, “Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” and said, “I think we should get even,” after Kidd left Brooklyn in the lurch to sign a three-year, $15 million contract to coach the Bucks this summer. When Kidd was told about the comments, he had a pretty funny rebuttal: a one-on-one showdown between the two. Read More »

The new-look Charlotte Hornets once trailed the Milwaukee Bucks by 24 points midway through the third quarter on Wednesday. Maybe they just wanted to keep things interesting on opening night? Led by Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Lance Stephenson, and Al Jefferson, Charlotte came buzzing back to finally tie the young Bucks late in the fourth quarter – on a three-pointer by Kemba Walker with under two seconds remaining. And in overtime, the Hornets’ point guard of the present and future did himself one better, nailing the winning jumper as the game clock crept to five seconds. Read More »

Video: Lance Stephenson Rises For Vicious Power Dunk Over Larry Sanders

Lance Stephenson

Lance Stephenson’s first game as a Charlotte Hornet hasn’t gone as planned. Born Ready didn’t score until the third quarter of his team’s regular season debut against the Milwaukee Bucks, but perhaps Stephenson’s second basket will be what gets him going. Watch Lance gather with a power dribble before rising for a vicious poster dunk on elite rim-protector Larry Sanders. Read More »
