The legend of The Greek Freak continues to grow, much like he does.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, 19, became a fan favorite with the Milwaukee Bucks as a rookie last season, and based on what we have seen from him so far, he has some special talents.

During Wednesday's exhibition game between Greece and Turkey, the 6'10.25" forward went from the opposite foul line to the basket in two dribbles. That means he covered 72 feet while putting the ball on the floor only twice.

And we've seen this before: here during the summer league and here last season.

Greece won 70-56, and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who came off the bench, scored a game-high 12 points, adding six rebounds and two steals.
