Greek on Greek Crime: Giannis Posterizes Koufos
Giannis Antetokounmpo had himself a great afternoon with a triple-double in three quarters. He played his ass off on Sunday, and you can make the argument he played like the ‘GOAT’ in the state yesterday. Giannis was throwing around highlight plays all over the place, but the play of the day happened to be a ridiculous poster dunk on Kosta Koufos. Antetokounmpo caught himself a body and adds his name to the poster list. John Henson took the first poster, and Giannis has the second one with many more to come in the next few weeks.

There are few other dunks in here for good measure. Giannis could not be stopped on Sunday. We’ll write up his night in the Bucks Buzz later today, but my god, this is the best version of Antetokounmpo we’ve seen all season. I mentioned on Thursday how Giannis’ season had been a little ‘choppy’, but he seems to be rolling right now. Also, the fact these two are from Greece, they do know each other, and well, let’s just say the next meeting will be interested. Kosta should have made a business decision.
Asked Giannis if he felt any guilt dunking on his countryman Koufos:
"Definitely. He's a great guy. Like, he's a great guy. I've met his family. I've met his mother. It's going be kind of awkward when we go back to Greece and talk again, but you gotta do what you gotta do."
