The Bucks have a player named Giannis Antetokounmpo. You may have heard of him. He has really long arms and is really good at playing basketball.
Gordon Hayward doesn’t care. Gordon Hayward does what he wants.
While Antetokounmpo is the one who has dazzled with some great rim-rockers this season, the Jazz forward Hayward decided to put Antetokounmpo on a poster of his own.
The best part of the video is probably Hayward pulling a Derek Zoolander and delivering the icy, Blue Steel gaze at Antetokounmpo after the finish.
The Jazz and Hayward are becoming an increasingly fun team to watch, and that dunk helped secure a 109-95 Utah victory over Milwaukee.
The closest we’ve come to seeing Durant in that role was during his MVP season when he went through a 26-game stretch without Westbrook. His numbers in those games: 35.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game on 52.7 percent shooting from the field and 39.9 percent from the 3-point line. To put it into perspective how ridiculous that is, the only player in NBA history who has averaged 30.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists while shooting 50 percent from the field over the course of a season is Michael Jordan.
It isn’t crazy to think Durant would’ve joined Jordan as the only players to put up those numbers if he was in the same situation as Harden. It’s not the triple-double Westbrook and James would likely average, but it’s equally as impressive.
