It was just a preseason game, but Giannis Antetokounmpo admitted feeling much more comfortable playing within the NBA rules. The Greek Freak is coming off his participation in the 2019 FIBA World Cup competing under FIBA rules and thoroughly enjoyed the differences NBA brings to the table.
“It felt very good” admitted the reigning NBA MVP replying to a question on his impressive first dunk in the Milwaukee Bucks home prep tilt versus the Utah Jazz. He stormed down the court, made his way through the defense and punished the rim. It was a trademark play not observed as much as expected in the World Cup.
