Giannis Antetokounmpo made of 34,852 life-size LEGO bricks

Giannis Lego Life Size in Greece

As the best basketball player in the world, Giannis continues to inspire us on and off the court. He’s the humblest superstar that’s ever played in the NBA and Milwaukee should feel eternally grateful that Antetokounmpo will be the face of their franchise for many more years to come. In his home country of Greece two life size Lego Statues were made of the Greek Freak.

It took 180 hours of work and 34,852 Lego bricks to produce this result, which in total weighs 77 kg and was made life-size.

The “statue” of the “greek freak” shows Giannis holding up the ball wearing the national jersey with the number “34”.

One of the Statues is located in the Antetokumbros store at the “Eleftherios Venizelos” airport, while the other is in the Golden Hall shopping center.

NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has admitted that he used to play Lego games ‘a lot.’

In a report by Tyler Erzberger of ESPN, NBA players shared their hobbies outside of basketball. Players like Lonzo Ball, Andre Drummond and Ben Simmons professed their love for video games such as Fortnite, 2K and Madden, among others. Antetokounmpo, for his part, was hesitant to admit that he played a lot of Lego games, especially the Indiana Jones version.

“This might sound corny … I used to play a lot of, you know, the Lego games,” Giannis said. “The Lego games are fun. You can be the superhero Lego and all that; that was fun with [versions such as] Indiana Jones Lego.”
