Giannis Antetokounmpo Puts Leaping Ability on Display with Huge Block

The "Greek Freak" lived up to his nickname with a high-energy play and athletic block during the Milwaukee Bucks' 130-110 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.

Antetokounmpo chased down Tony Wroten and disrupted a breakaway dunk before tumbling to the ground, then recovered in time to swat a Michael Carter-Williams layup. 

The Bucks were up 18 in the second quarter, and most players would concede the easy score at that point. However, Antetokounmpo taught us a valuable lesson that playing hard always pays off.

Nice hustle, kid.
