Giannis Antetokounmpo Dunks “Beau Kittredge Style”

Ben Dowsett, deputy editor at Basketball Insiders and credentialed NBA reporter covering the Utah Jazz, had this reaction while watching Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo put down a massive alley-oop during a game against the New York Knicks.

Here’s the play itself, featuring the 6’11” Antetokounmpo launching himself over New York Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr, who is 6’6″.

Dowsett’s comment is a reference to Kittredge’s first giant leap into the world of ultimate stardom. Or, at least the first one that was caught on video. In it, Kittredge launches himself over a defender chasing after a huck for Colorado Mamabird. Take a trip down memory lane and relive the play that inspired the tweet:
