Giannis intentionally missed the buzzer for a triple-double

Triple-doubles have become a regular occurrence in the NBA as offense is built on stars who initiate everything no matter the position, but even though we see them almost every night they still hold a special meaning for players.

We saw that on Sunday in Washington when Giannis Antetokounmpo, who recorded 32 triple-doubles in his career, couldn’t help but chase the stimulus of another in the final seconds as he put on nine rebounds. Giannis is dribbling a 117-111 win over the Wizards when he realizes he’s under the basket. So why not just bounce one off the backboard to yourself for a little treat?

The Wizards goalie gave Giannis his rebound in the official book, which allowed him to notch the triple-double in a key win for the Bucks to stay ahead of the Celtics at the top in the East.

It’s very funny watching Giannis do this because like I said, it’s not like he only gets this chance on rare occasions. That’s usually the case when you’ve got a triple-double chase of this magnitude, with the all-timer in this category being Ricky Davis, who in a legendary moment threw a layup onto the wrong rim to try to put one into a blowout receive.

It’s not Giannis quite so bad because he goes to the right edge for at least one shot, but it’s still pretty shameless (while being completely harmless). Giannis intentionally missed the buzzer for a triple-double
