In 2013, Giannis Antetokounmpo earned the nickname The Greek Freak when he came into the league at 6’9 and a 190 pounds with his NBA draft suit on and a pocket full of change. After 4  months, the 18 year old grew over an inch and was projected to end up as a 7 footer.

Then after his rookie season, he was reported as being 6’11 and 217 pounds.

By the time he did the NBA dunk contest in early 2015, he was filling out and becoming a nightly highlight on Sportscenter with his long arms and legs which allows him to cover the length of the court in 3 dribbles.

If his body and skills weren’t freakish enough, the NBA posted this pic of Greek Freak on Monday and it looks like he’s just getting bigger and freakier which is scary.

Some of the off season work came in the form of boxing training which can be seen in the following video of his summer trip to Taiwan.
