Tonight is the start of a busy Bucks weekend in New York City as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brandon Knight are set to participate in the All-Star Weekend Festivities. Before we go any further, let's lay out what you'll need to tune in for tonight.
Who? Giannis Antetokounmpo.
What? BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge: U.S. vs. The World
(You can find the full rosters here)
Where? New York/the comfort of your living room/this very comments section
When? 8:00 p.m. on TNT
Why? Because DUH. That's why.
I'm sure we're all anxious to see to the action get underway, but let's rewind a bit and see what both of the Bucks participants have been up to since arriving in the Big Apple.
Note: When these photos first started rolling out, I thought that they were actually posing in these ridiculous ways. Turns out the setup was adjusted to trick you and that I am, in fact, a huge idiot. Anyways...
(Note #2: Giannis had mentioned earlier in the week that he had been studying Larry Nance for inspiration in the dunk contest. Based on that picture, I'm hoping for a similar dunk like the one at the 17-second mark in this video, but backwards (if that makes sense)).
I think you get the idea: both of the Bucks representatives are having a good time and the social media team is having a good time covering it. We look forward to interacting with you all over the course of this awesome weekend.
Okay. One more Giannis thing.
