Giannis Antetokounmpo is very good at basketball. The reigning MVP and NBA Champion is a multi-faceted weapon on the floor after adding a formidable outside shot over the offseason. He’s also rarely had a problem dunking the basketball into the hoop with relative ease, whenever he so chooses. But according to the 26-year-old Milwaukee Bucks star, he was recently informed of a new way to eat one of his favorite snacks. After their 114-93 throttling of the Detroit Pistons, Antetokounmpo was asked if his favorite cookie would make its way onto the Thanksgiving menu, and the big man had a lot to say.
I asked @Giannis_An34 if Oreos and milk are on the Thanksgiving menu. His response was 2 minutes long.— Stephen Watson (@WISN_Watson) November 25, 2021
"From now on, that's an every night snack for me." https://t.co/ecySUFxxUm pic.twitter.com/qU2t0kTH9m
“When I came to the league, that was the first thing I ate…when I was younger I was always craving them…you know people go spend money on cars and chains, and I spent it on Oreos” the charming young star explained that a kid from a commercial shoot he was doing the other day, had asked him if he had ever dunked his Oreos in milk. The stunned Greek Freak immediately grabbed and “threw” his Oreos into the milk, much to the chagrin of this child professor. Not thinking anything of it, Giannis explains how he fetched a spoon and how his life was changed forever, “I took the first one, and was like…what the hell…no freaking way…Bro this is amazing!”. After polishing off 12 of them, Giannis had to poke fun at his partner for not letting him in on this secret sooner. “I went back home and I was like, ‘Mariah (Mariah Riddlesprigger, Giannis’ partner), why did you not tell me that you could throw the Oreo’s in the milk and eat them….I realized from now on, that’s it, every night snack for me.”
There’s not much that the Greek Freak can’t do, and maybe now that he has discovered the wonders of Oreo’s and milk, the league should be afraid, be very afraid.
