Giannis Leads All NBA In All-Star Votes. Yes, Really.
GIANNIS! Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading vote-getter for the NBA All-Star Game. Not James Harden. Not LeBron James. Giannis is the leading vote-getter. A kid from Greece who plays in Milwaukee. Absolutely incredible to see, even if it’s not surprising considering the ascent of Giannis and how damn likable he is as a person. Although, this is a major step in Giannis being one of the most known players in the NBA.
NBA All-Star Games are mostly meaningless besides being popularity contest. Now for Milwaukee’s best player to be seen as the most popular player in the league is a great feeling. Imagine thinking this 10 years ago.John Hammond deserves a fucking statue for drafting Giannis. It’s amazing, and we should be happy as Bucks fans. It’s not time for us to be cynical and embrace him having a chance to be among the elite.
Another quick All-Star note that’s going to make me a sound like an old man. The Twitter #NBAVote thing has got to stop. It’s taking over NBA Twitter, and I’m getting pretty sick of it. I’m glad there’s only a few weeks left. Bucks marketing deserves credit for getting out the word, and I know there’s doing their job, but it’s all fake engagement.
Go Giannis, go Bucks.
