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.
He’s best known for chronicling his new food finds, his most iconic moment was his first taste of a smoothie:
I just taste for the first time a smothie..MAN GOD BLESS AMERICA— Giannis Antetokounmpo (@Giannis_An34) January 20, 2014
And they still seem a favorite of his.
His discovery of more American food staples
No one has ever been this excited for a corn dog before.
Probably not about Kool-Aid either.
Giannis just discovered dunking Oreos in milk 9 years into his NBA career
He dunked his Oreos in milk for the first time and couldn’t believe what he was missing.
As if this tweet wasn’t already good enough, Giannis gave an incredibly serious answer when asked ask about his journey of self-discovery with Oreos. This is why we love him.

His super corny dad jokes that are so bad, that’s what makes them funny:
How do you make a tissue dance?! You put a little "Boogie" in it!! My Dad jokes are back!!— Giannis Antetokounmpo (@Giannis_An34) November 29, 2021
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:
Sometimes you just got to dance! pic.twitter.com/a8qsVd5QUd— Giannis Antetokounmpo (@Giannis_An34) October 25, 2020
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..?
There’s a good 3.5 minutes left of halftime, Ja Rule is mid-song and Giannis is already out shooting. pic.twitter.com/sPoyVnpI7x— Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) February 24, 2019
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.
Favorite--of many--anecdotes from @G_ante34 reporting. Early in the season, Giannis took a cab to Western Union to send money home...— Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) March 5, 2014
…after sending all the money he could to Greece, he realized he didn't have enough left for cab fare. It was game day, so he started running— Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) March 5, 2014
…he got about a mile before a couple stopped, asked if he was the Bucks rookie. He said yes. They picked him up and dropped him at the arena— Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) March 5, 2014
