Giannis Antetokounmpo has a childish personality. On the court, he could be the bully of his opponents, but off the court, the inner kid shows itself. Yes, you read it correctly—he was playing with a toy dinosaur today. Yes, we hinted at it in the title, but the actual thing is his quickness of nature.
It is just as hilarious as you may think. We speculate that having three siblings while growing up on the alleys of Athens may have robbed him of his youth, but he reclaims it whenever he sees toys.
Giannis Antetokounmpo intimidates his rivals
So instead of intimidating his opponents in the paint, the greatest player in the NBA is playing with dinosaurs. We think it’s a fun fact. He had fouls all day, yet he still managed to score 30-11-4.
A typical evening at work for the Greek Freak. You could be asking yourself whose toy it was. It is Lopez’s T-rex, according to some reports. It wouldn’t be the first time that Brook has produced a toy dinosaur in the past.
Giannis Antetokounmpo jumps from the charity stripe and challenges Doncic to the challenge
Today, though, the actual news is how he dueled it out with Luka, not how our favorite naive youngster from Athens was playing with a toy dinosaur.
With just a hundred or so fewer games than Shaq, Giannis entered a coveted list. We predict he will achieve that in the following two to three seasons. But more significantly, he decisively eliminated Luka.
When his score falls below 30, Doncic is likewise a depressing 0-5. Although his MVP season is still perfect, the Mavericks over-rely on him, and the defeats may take some of the lusters off.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic engaged in an amazing battle. The two Europeans utterly enthralled the more than 17,000 people at the Fiserv Forum.
The Greek Freak had a game-high 30 points and 11 rebounds, while Luka had an incredible double-double of 27 points and 12 assists.
After the fight, the MVP contenders continued complimenting one another’s performance. The NBA’s top player, Antetokounmpo, was mentioned first by Luka. The Slovenian star said that the two-time MVP was “nearly difficult to stop.” The Mavs guard, who is 6’7″, said:
“Going up against a person like him is difficult. He is now the top player in the NBA. He’s very difficult to stop. Although watching him play is a lot of fun, but playing against him is not as fun.”
