Ball Don't Lie

Say it with me: "YAHN-is anh-teh-toe-KUHN-po." Repeat.

Yonn-is On-tay-toe-koon-poe. Repeat.

(Man, this is going to be rough.)

Idea: On the first day of practice, the first thing one of the Bucks' new point guards — Brandon Knight, Luke Ridnour, Gary Neal, Nate Wolters, whoever — should do is make a point of throwing 6-foot-10 18-year-old rookie swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo a lob at the rim for him to dunk. Then we can just call him Alley-G. Booyakasha.
