Giannis lawyer has filed to trademark the phrase “Greek Freak” on behalf of his client Giannis Antetokounmpko, the Milwaukee Bucks forward and favorite to win this year’s NBA MVP, for use with an “online gambling website,” among other things.

“With the way things are evolving, we’d rather get ahead of things than be behind,” Saratsis said. “If we can one day use it then we will, if not, we will move on.”

The trademark filing was first discovered by trademark lawyer Josh Gerben.
