Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the closest entity in the NBA to an unstoppable force. At 7’0 243 pounds, the accurately named ‘Greek Freak’ is a superb anomaly on the court, sprinting past defenders with a blistering quickness while being able to body the opposition in the paint with ease.

The third oldest of five sons to Nigerian emigrants, the Greece-native made waves amongst the international scene at the Filathlitikos Club in Athens throughout his early years. Following his selection by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, The Swoosh would be the only brand to offer the 18-year-old a sneaker deal.

From sharing a pair of sneakers with his brother on the court to building his own signature series with the Beaverton brand, Antetokounmpo’s family and journey remains at the forefront of his line.

Just four days after securing his first of back-to-back regular season MVP’s – the 12th player in League history to do so – Giannis launched the beginnings of his signature brand with the Nike Zoom Freak 1. As the brand’s first signature athlete born and raised outside of the States, the 2021 champions’ popularity has skyrocketed, proffering one of The Swooshes most profitable name brand series.

Currently on his fifth signature silhouette with the Beaverton brand, check out more on the Nike Zoom Freak 5 and further news regarding the Bucks superstar ahead.
