Giannis Antetokounmpo shows out-of-this-world athleticism against Celtics

This is not normal.


No matter how many times Giannis Antetokounmpo wows us, we should not reach the point that we take for granted his ability to accomplish athletic, out-of-this-world and, well, freakish tasks on the basketball court that human beings should not be capable of completing.

He caught a pass from just beyond halfcourt and needed one — count it, one — dribble before thundering home a dunk to complete the solo fast break during Monday’s matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics.

And to preempt the always-vocal legion of NBA haters; no, that’s not a travel. It is simply an amazing athletic feat.

And then, in the second half, there’s this nifty little halfcourt move/poster dunk schooling both Al Horford and Aron Baynes.


Marcus Smart apparently failed to take notes on his teammates’ fruitless defensive efforts.


The fast-forward evolution of the human species taking place on NBA courts is like nothing we’ve ever seen.
