Bucks superstar and reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo officially is out after the birth of his son, Liam Charles Antetokounmpo.

The Greek Freak is averaging 30.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game for the Milwaukee Bucks this season. He is one of the most dominant players in the league, and with his team posting a 45-7 record, he is the odds-on favorite to win a second straight MVP award.

Milwaukee has played without their star four times this season and they are 4-0 with an average margin of victory of 18 points. If he can't make it back in time for the game, the Bucks seem to have him covered.

Antetokounmpo received plenty of congratulatory tweets in response to his announcement, but one fan might have posted the most creative of all.

There will be no Giannis or Papagiannis on the floor Monday in Milwaukee.
