Shaq is a man with a thousand nicknames, but one of the more famous ones he’s known for, he’s willing to dish out to a current NBA star. 

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo

“And you know what? I don’t want to encourage big guys to shoot jumpers and 3-pointers. Stay your big ass on the inside and dominate like you been doing. So I denounce myself as Superman and I’m giving to the ‘Greek Freak.’ You heard it here first.”

The Greek Freak is is averaging 27.3 points, 12.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game for the Bucks, who lead the Central Division and are only three games behind the Toronto Raptors for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Shaq has also weighed in on this year’s MVP. 

When you have a nickname as great as the Greek Freak, you don’t need a generic one used by Shaq and Dwight Howard. 

I think he’ll be just fine using his own.
