Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo got into the Halloween spirit this year with an epic choice of Halloween costume.
A few years ago, then-Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo put together the greatest Halloween costume in NBA history. It has not been topped since then – and it likely never will.
While Antetokounmpo’s costume from this week didn’t rise to Rondo’s level either, it was still pretty funny.
The imagery largely speaks for itself:
Giannis brought The Hulk to his press conference 😂

They immediately flocked to social media to weigh in:

I like the idea but truth be told Giannis doesn’t have the charisma or command of the language to pull it off.

Whereas Antetokounmpo tends to only find himself in the headlines for positive things, the same can’t be said for his new teammate Damian Lillard.

Luckily, Antetokounmpo is there to pick up the slack in that department.
Will Antetokounmpo’s Halloween costume prove to be the best one on the Bucks’ roster this year? Time will tell.
