A rising star: Our favorite Giannis moments (so far)
Milwaukee Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo will participate in the NBA All-Star weekend by playing in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night.
The 19-year-old has captured the hearts of fans and media in the first half of his rookie season, for a variety of reasons.
He's sort of become a pop sensation, if you ask us.
Here are some of our favorite moments so far:
10. His parallel parking (at 4:15 in the video)
"Oh it's nice. It's smashing. I'm the best."
9. His hands
8. His blog
"For me the best gift is the NBA. What I am going through is amazing. Even now, when I am stepping on the floor, I think it's not real. Until seven months ago I was playing in ESKA and A2 [read: Greek lower divisions] and now I am in the NBA. If this isn't a gift, then what is?"
6. Throwing up the antlers
5. The fantastic StarBUCKS Drake Hands video
