MILWAUKEE — If you were lucky enough to watch the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, chances are you saw Giannis Antetokounmpo throw down some ridiculous dunks.

Behind Antetokounmpo's game-high 38 points and Khris Middleton's 20, Team Giannis led for most of the game, but Team LeBron completed the comeback and won 178-164.

From the opening possession, Antetokounmpo was on a mission to dunk the basketball. The most exciting play of the evening came on a bounce pass from Stephen Curry.

This dunk has everyone, including the Greek Freak himself, asking if he will be a participant in the 2020 Dunk Contest.

This would be Antetokounmpo's second run in this competition, his first coming in 2015.

Next year's dunk contest could be one of the best ever, with high-flying college stars Zion Williamson and Ja Morant expected to participate.

Besides those two, the field also might include Antetokounmpo, former dunk contest champion Donovan Mitchell and maybe two-time dunk contest champion Zach LaVine.

LaVine is a guard for the Chicago Bulls, and next year's festivities are in Chicago.
