Pat Connaughton Needs To Use A Giannis Prop
The NBA announced on Monday that Milwaukee Bucks forward Pat Connaughton will be in the dunk contest. That is awesome. Kudos to the Bucks’ marketing and social media teams who pushed the idea forward. They had a hashtag #LetPatDunk and it paid off. I also think the NBA wanted to ensure that the best team in the league, the Milwaukee Bucks, were somehow involved in Saturday’s All-Star festivities. Connaughton can throw down, and I’m excited to see what he’ll bust out. I have to believe that Giannis will be involved somehow someway. Planet Pat has done it before.
Pat Connaughton got Giannis 🤣

This is a no-brainer for him and for Giannis. This will draw eyeballs to what Connaughton is doing plus be a clip that will go all over social media. While you have to be a good dunker, I do think the prop is an important part of being successful in a dunk contest. That is where Giannis comes in. I don’t know if Connaughton can dunk over Giannis, but I believe he should try on All-Star Weekend.
No word yet if the Bucks will have a participant for the skills challenge or three-point contest. My guess is George Hill will get an invite to the three-point contest if he wants it.
