Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked over Aron Baynes so hard Baynes didn't even realize it

Baynes wasn’t even sure if the ball went through the basket. (Spoiler alert: It definitely did.)

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a freakish athlete who can do things that we’ve never seen before. Example:

Somehow, Giannis gathers this mostly with his left hand while transferring to his right for a one-handed dunk. His leaping ability and his length — seriously, this man has extendoarms — are just incredible. I’m just laughing at how unfair this image is.

The best part — as astutely noticed by Tas Melas — is that Baynes didn’t even realize the shot had gone in. He grabs the ball real quick and tries to get it to a guard before realizing nobody is playing hard. It’s just him!

Antetokounmpo scored 37 points with 13 rebounds to go with it. This man could really be an MVP. He’s that unstoppable.

Things didn’t get much easier for Baynes in his second matchup against Giannis either...
