Slam Kicks Magazine has dedicated its cover for this month’s edition to NBA’s Most Valuable Player of the year, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Slam is an American basketball magazine which has been in circulation since 1994.
This is the second Slam magazine that has focused on the “Greek Freak” launching his own “Zoom Freak 1” signature shoe line.
Written on the cover of the magazine is “Giannis God Level”, while a video uploaded on YouTube explains the story behind the shoe and how he dedicates it to his family.
“All the shoes, as you guys can see, say ‘I am my father’s legacy.’ And right here,” he said in the interview with KICKS, pointing to the midsole, “you can see his name as well with my mom’s name.”
