Giannis Antetokounmpo Describing His First Time Dunking An Oreo In Milk Is So Wholesome


Giannis Antetokounmpo Describing His First Time Dunking An Oreo In Milk Is So Wholesome

Giannis Antetokounmpo is quickly becoming everyone's favourite basketball player.

On the court, the big man is one of the best in the league, having guided the Milwaukee Bucks to a championship last season.

But off it, he continues to provide us fans with comedy gold.

In a recent press conference, his humble and down-to-earth nature was on show for all to see.

Instead of analysing his team's upcoming NBA fixtures, Giannis recently opened up on his first experience dunking an Oreo in milk - and the clip itself makes for wholesome viewing.

"Wait, let's talk about that a little bit," Giannis said of his recent discovery.

"So, so, it's definitely - how do you guys say - a bed night? Bed time snack. Bed time snack, sorry. So, I had this commercial, this video shoot I did and it was three kids there. And we were doing a shoot about some cookies, you know? And we had some Oreos over there. And this kid asked me, he was like, 'Have you ever ate Oreos before?' I was like yeah!


"When I came to the league that was the first thing I ate because like, I was always - when I was younger I was always craving them and I could never afford them you know, so I was like OK, give me that. You get a little bit of money people go spend money on cars and chains, I went and bought Oreos, right? So, I ate them for like a month straight. No dinner, no lunch, no nothing. So I got sick of them, right?

"So, he was like 'have you ever dunked them in milk?' I'm like no. He's like, 'You should try that!' So I was like OK, cool, so we did the commercial and I took the milk and I took the Oreos and I threw it in the milk! He was like, 'No! Just dunk it, like put it in.' Like don't worry about, give me a spoon. I grab a spoon... I took the first one... and I was like what the hell. No freakin' way.

"He's like, 'You like them?' I was like, bro, this is amazing! So, so, you know, obviously I didn't have one. I had like 12 of them. And then I went back home and I was like Mariah [his partner], why did you not tell me that you could throw the Oreos in the milk and eat them. She told me that she doesn't like her Oreos like that, she likes them plain with no milk and all that.


"And then I realized from now on, that's an every night snack for me. It's amazing. I remember I went to the practice facility today and we were talking about it a little bit and the guys were like you've never tried that? I was like guys you have to realize, I'm not American. Like, things that you feel like it's normal, for you guys it's like an everyday thing, we have other everyday things. Like, you guys have peanut butter and jelly, we have butter and jelly. It's like just two totally different worlds.

"So, yeah, that was my experience, man. And I really, really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the Oreos. So from now on, it's going to be Oreos and milk for me every night. I might get fat. But it's OK."



Pure gold.

How can you not love this man?

Giannis and the Bucks are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference and take on the Denver Nuggets next.
