During his media day photoshoot, Giannis was in conversation with the admins of the “Bucks in Six” fan page.

“One of the hallmarks of his athleticism is transferring energy quickly from leg to leg to maneuver his body through gaps, said Ross Klein, Sr. Creative Director for Men’s Performance Footwear at Nike. “Giannis works his foot like a gas and brake. He also works all different angles of his foot as he’s driving to the basket, so we wanted to contour the design to fit the way he transitions from step to step.”
