Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokoumpo has been very busy since the NBA entered its All-Star Break. It has certainly not been a break for him as he took part in events every day during the festivities in Salt Lake City.

After playing Thursday Night against the Chicago Bulls and injuring his wrist, Antetokounmpo was on the sidelines coaching during the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday night. Saturday night he was scheduled to take part in the Skills Competition, but because of his wrist injury, he sat out the event and was replaced by teammate Jrue Holiday.

On Sunday, he was captain of one of the All-Star teams against LeBron James. Antetokounmpo spent all but a few seconds on the sideline cheering his team on as his team won the opening tip, he dunked the ball and intentionally fouled to sub out of the game.

It could be a little while until we see him back in the lineup even with the Bucks as he suffered a sprained ligament in his right wrist. He will undergo treatment and once the pain subsides he will be able to return to the court.

The Bucks certainly hope that return happens sooner than later as they aren’t close to the same team without him. Currently sitting in second place in the Eastern Conference, only a half-game behind the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee needs him in the lineup if they are to take over the No. 1 overall seed.

Teams facing off against the Bucks are certainly breathing a sigh of relief knowing they may not have to contend with the Greek Freak. Game planning for Milwaukee is much easier when he isn’t on the floor, as he was not wrong when he made bold comments during the All-Star break about being unguardable.

“You got to build a wall, man! You got to build a wall to stop me this day,” Antetokounmpo said. “There’s a team called. . .they created the Giannis wall. Boston does it now, Chicago tried to do it, Miami tried to do it. There’s a thing called the Giannis wall, I created that thing. There’s no one-on-one in my world. There’s me playing against one, two guys, three guys, four guys. One-on-one isn’t my thing, it’s impossible.”

While that could be taken as cocky and overconfident, when it comes to Antetokounmpo, he is speaking the truth. There is no one that can stop him while playing one-on-one defense; they can only hope to contain him.
