Giannis Antetokounmpo for the Milwaukee Bucks is an absolute stud. The "Greek Freak" as he's referred to as, is a 6'11 monster. He sent the Phoenix Suns home after last nights game, by blocking an potential game changing dunk:

But let's get back to that name...Giannis Antetokounmpo. Some pronounce the first name wrong, but everyone says the LAST NAME wrong, including Derek Bayne of WREX. His stumble and mumble of Antetokounmpo was highlighted of the Jimmy Kimmel show. They ran through a handful of different ways that people say Antetokounmpo, and they put Derek first on the list. Forward to the :39 mark in the video for the set up and then Derek Bayne's attempt at Giannis Antetokounmpo...

In Derek's defense, his version was not even close to being the worst one. He put forth a solid effort with no pauses and hesitation.

This was all done with a big laugh, and I'm sure this was actually sent to Kimmel. But how funny to see WREX kinda poking fun at themselves. The ultimate in "we take ourselves so serious," look at our Emmy's, we "dig deeper" blah, blah, back pat, back pat...this was freaking great to see.

Good luck to the Milwaukee Bucks by the way, let's see them bring this home!
