Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is set to become the first non-American NBA player to get his own signature Nike shoe. The honour is yet another box ticked by the rising star who continues to make an impression on the league.
While no release date or images have been leaked so far, anticipation levels are high amongst fans of the Greek forward who, in the 2016–17 season, became the first player in NBA history to finish a regular season in the top 20 for total points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
Speaking recently about getting his own signature Nike kicks, Antetokounmpo said, ‘Most importantly, what I want to emphasise is that there has never been a non-American player with his own signature shoe by Nike. What I want to say is that all dreams can become true, if you work hard, if you believe, and you do not give up.’
