Milwaukee Bucks’ superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo might be one of the most intense players on the court, but off the court, the ‘Greek Freak’ is one of the funniest NBA personalities around.

His recent appearance at the All-Star game was the proof of how hilarious the 2-time MVP can be. While players like Steph Curry might have been the star, it was the duo of Giannis and Nikola Jokic who truly stole the show.

The 26-year-old was at it again. In a video released by YouTuber Daniel Mac, Antetokounmpo, who was shown in his Rolls Royce, was asked what he does for a living. The ‘Greek Freak‘, who was riding alongside his brother Thanasis, promptly replied “Bitcoin.”

However, he later added, “We work hard, we work extremely hard.

The 2-time MVP certainly is enjoying life at the moment, with his team at the top of their game and only win or two away from clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Can Giannis Antetokounmpo lead the Bucks to a championship?

While players like Joel Embiid and Damian Lillard have dominated the recent MVP conversations, the reigning 2-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo hasn’t been given his due respect this season.

The 26-year-old is having yet another tremendous season. In the 45 games he has played, he is averaging 28.8 points, 11.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. He has also been more effective this season, attempting fewer threes per game and letting shooters operate more frequently.

While Giannis is the bonafide superstar, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday form the rest of the Bucks big three. Middleton has continued to be one of the crucial players for Milwaukee, adding about 20 points per game.

But the key difference has been the addition of Jrue Holiday. The two-way beast has been absolutely tearing it up in the league. He surely is a significant upgrade compared to guard Eric Bledsoe.

With the core of Giannis, Holiday and Middleton, the Bucks surely are contenders.

Milwaukee finally have a competent support cast around Giannis. It will be interesting to see how they approach the post-season. If Giannis can be as effective as his regular season and players like Holiday and Middleton can help in the scoring end, there is no doubt that the Bucks can have a real championship run.
