Oklahoma City Thunder v Milwaukee Bucks

From his corny media day jokes to his never-ending American food discoveries, Giannis Antetokounmpo always seems to keep NBA twitter laughing. The 6’ 11’ “Greek Freak” has managed to keep the internet entertained since he since he was first drafted in 2013.

No one has ever been this excited for a corn dog before.

Probably not about Kool-Aid either.

He dunked his Oreos in milk for the first time and couldn’t believe what he was missing.

His super corny dad jokes that are so bad, that’s what makes them funny:

Especially his media day jokes:

I guess leading the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA Championship will make up for his poor comedy skills.

He might be a better dancer than a comedian:

Not only is he a professional basketball player, but also a professional break dancer!

He even challenged some guys to a dance battle in Taiwan.

What’s even funnier is the time he maybe forgot to dance..?

Aside from basketball, he absolutely loves being a dad:

And was super excited after finding out he had a son on the way.

Giannis went to the Chik-Fil-A drive-through after winning his first championship

No one can relate to Giannis’ size, speed, and strength — but everyone can relate to the way he orders fast food.

Giannis’ most wholesome moment happened during his rookie year

Antetokounmpo showed up to the NBA as a fresh-faced 18-year-old who had never been to the United States before and barely knew where Milwaukee was on a map. Giannis wasn’t just learning about basketball during his rookie season — he was learning about life. That led to a hilarious and iconic story about a young Antetokounmpo hitchhiking his way to a game.
