Giannis Antetokounmpo follows footsteps of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant with new publishing deal for own book of jokes

Giannis Antetokounmpo has made a name for himself on the basketball court as a two-time MVP and champion with the Milwaukee Bucks. But now, the Greek-Nigerian superstar is venturing into the literary world with a publishing deal for his own book of jokes. 

Following in the footsteps of NBA legends LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, Antetokounmpo is set to release a compilation of humorous anecdotes and witty one-liners that he has collected and created over the years.

According to the reports, the Greek-Nigerian celebrity athlete has struck a deal with a major publishing company to release a compilation of jokes he has been collecting and authoring.

The book, tentatively titled “Constipation,” will feature various categories of jokes grouped into chapters. Antetokounmpo has been categorizing jokes for the past few years, testing their success in pressers and Instagram posts. He’s also been collaborating with his brothers, especially Thanasis, to create original jokes.

Apart from classic categories like “So Bad it’s Great” and “Cheesy Goodness,” the book will also include NBA-focused jokes and a “Dad Jokes” chapter. It is a category the basketball player is particularly fond of. Despite the challenge of translating humor, the book will feature Greek and Nigerian jokes.

When will the book of Giannis Antetokounmpo be released?
