Milwaukee Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo has an athletic composition so freakish it almost sounds like a punchline. He stands at 6'11" with a 7'4" wingspan and has the hops of a rabbit combined with the handle of a guard.

The 20-year-old Greek sensation, also known as the Greek Freak, showed off his max vertical reach Wednesday, hitting a peak of 12 feet, two inches.

That's 26 inches above the rim, just to give some context to his feat.

Based on the all-time max vertical reach records available on DraftExpress.com, Antetokounmpo ties for ninth-highest mark ever recorded. 2013 undrafted free agent D.J. Stephens holds the record at 12'5.5". Incidentally, he played alongside Antetokounmpo through the course of a 10-day contract at the end of the 2013-14 season.
