Giannis Antetokounmpo wins NBA dunk of the year

Bucks player launches over Knicks player

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has won the NBA's Dunk of the Year. 

His legendary dunk in February sent him soaring over 6-foot-6 Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. "I knew (Middleton) was going to throw me the lob," Antetokounmpo said after the game. "It was a bad pass but I was able to get up and go get the ball. I didn't see Tim Hardaway under me. I just went up to get the ball."

Fans voted the Greek Freak over DeMar DeRozan, LeBron James, Donovan Mitchell and Larry Nance. The rest of the nominated dunks can all be seen here:
