How can you not like this guy? Besides the fact that Gianis Antetokounmpo is a “6’11 point guard” and one of the future stars in the league, he’s very humble and doesn’t take himself too seriously – as evident by him starting media day off with one of the worst jokes I’ve ever heard.
During a recent appearance on The Locked On Bucks podcast, the Greek Freak also dropped a few jokes about his questionable height.
“I don’t know. I’m 6-foot-11 and a half, so 7-foot. Almost 7-foot, 7-foot with shoes, 7-2 with high heels on. I’m joking (laughs).”
“I’m 6-9 like KD.”
I think Giannis could use a ghostwriter for his jokes and the perfect candidate would be another freak in the league: Blake Griffin. Here’s Blake’s recent stand-up act that is actually really funny and the real reason why I created this post.
As funny as Blake is doing stand-up, it’s nowhere near as funny as his naked appearance on the show “Broad City.”
