The Milwaukee Bucks have climbed all the way up to the top of the standings with a 55-22 win-loss record. Of course, leading the charge for league’s top team is the indomitable Giannis Antetokounmpo. So, it's no surprise he’s in the running to win his third MVP trophy this season.

Tomorrow, he’s got an opportunity to strengthen his MVP argument in a showdown against another frontrunner for the major award in Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers. But before that gargantuan clash, the Greek Freak wants to ask your opinion on which shoes he should use for the big game, which may very well be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals as well.


On his Instagram, Giannis had four Zoom Freak 4s in different colors laid out on a table. He was so hyped looking at his signature kicks, which was probably the reason why he couldn’t make up his mind. He’s now letting the people decide for him.

“You guys should let me know which ones to go with tomorrow. We got a big game tomorrow,” Giannis said.

The first pair was all purple with a green swish. The second had a light blue, gray, and red colorway. The third was mainly green with a silver green. And the last one was predominantly yellow with a silver swoosh that had some writings on it.

If it were up to us, we’d tell the seven-time NBA All-Star to pick the first shoe. That all purple Zoom Freak 4 is fire. And it will blend well with all of the Bucks’ jersey designs. But hey, the two-time MVP is asking the people. Go to his Instagram and make your picks.


We’ve got an additional question. How many points do you think will Giannis score should he go with your choice?
