Giannis Antetokounmpo Says He Didn't See Tim Hardaway Jr. While Jumping Over Him To Throw One Down, And I Have No Choice But To Believe Him
You know what, I'll take it a step further. Not only is there no reason not to believe that the seven foot gazelle with the hands of a human tree frog didn't see his prey as he damn near hurdled it cleanly, but it's actually the only way he could have completed the supernatural feat so casually. I know Giannis Antetokounmpo is confident in abilities that allow him to dunk from spots on the floor that were once thought impossible prior to the first installment of NBA Jam. However, even given his measurables and athleticism, I have a hard time believing he sized up another professional athlete, mentally calculated the amount of effort required to jump over him, and landed on 'less'.
Therefore, I'm stuck believing that the extraterrestrial that the Milwaukee Bucks have starting for them navigates NBA hardwood like you or I navigate excess rain water. If we aren't paying close enough attention we could easily end up with wet socks, and if Giannis isn't paying close enough attention he could easily slap a 6'6 shooting guard on a poster with a scrotum draped over his skull. Now, if only I could leap clear over a sizable puddle with the same grace that he could fully clear a sizable human if he ever found himself concerned enough to catch a glance at the runway prior to takeoff.
