Watch Giannis Antetokounmpo viciously block 7-footer Salah Mejri

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a point guard. Or, he’s a wing. Uh, a center? He is all things to all people I guess, including a huge obstacle for Dallas Mavericks center Salah Mejri.

On Sunday in Dallas, the Milwaukee Bucks wing helped slide over to defend Mejri at the rim. Thanks to his long arms and being a 7-footer himself, Antetokounmpo rejected the second-year center.

The result was pretty incredible.


Antetokounmpo struggled during this game, scoring 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting while adding seven rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists. He also had five turnovers.

Dallas beat Milwaukee, 86-75, in an ugly overtime contest.
