Perhaps we here at Bucksketball should seize upon the cue of the Bucks’ great @GreekFreakAlert Twitter feed.  They have decided to stop sending out tweets for each Giannis appearance now that he’s a starter and playing over 30 minutes a game.  They’ve recognized that it’s time to start expecting great things from Antetokounmpo instead of being pleasantly surprised.  He’s already amassing an amazing body of work on an every game basis.

But given that the Bucks didn’t play on local TV last night, it seems right to throw up at least one more video highlight sequence. With a hat tip to YouTube user Down to Buck, here’s what Giannis did in the overtime loss to the Bobcats, including the inbounds pass that set up Khris Middleton for the shot that nearly forced double overtime.

My favorite move is the pump fake/drop step that sent Cody Zeller flying the wrong way before Giannis leaned in for an easy dunk.  (Well, that and the alley-oop to Henson, and the inbounds pass and … you get the idea.)
