Can you imagine someone going all the way to the USA from Pakistan just to meet their sports personality and to check whether the internet is right about this physic of not? Well, it is true, and someone just did that. Basketball-crazy Pakistani fans traveled 8175 miles to the United States of America just to meet NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Giannis is a Greek professional basketball player of Nigerian descent. He is named “Greek Freak” because of his height and freakishly large hands. His athleticism which is amazing also helped in gaining this unique nickname.

He plays for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He primarily plays forward, but he can also guard because of his excellent ball handling skills. In 2016-17, he leads Bucks in all five major statistical categories, and he also became the one and only player in NBA history to finish a season in top 20 in total points in all categories such as total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.
It was reported on twitter by the Bleachers Report, and they attached a video as well showing enthusiastic Pakistani fans meeting NBA star only to see and check the size of his hands. Yes, Giannis has some very huge hands, and these fans wanted a photo proof whether it is true about his hands or not.

The star player signed them an autograph and showed off his hands by placing his hand against the fan’s hand. Gianni’s hands are very huge. And don misses the overly happy fans at the end of the clip.
