Mirin Fader’s new book on Giannis showcases a hilarious anecdote of when the Bucks superstar noticed 3 Oreos missing from his cookie jar.
The stars aligned for the Ringer’s Mirin Fader when it came to writing her book on Giannis Antetokounmpo. She announced the biographical novel on the day that the Greek native signed his contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks and released it merely a couple weeks following his first ever NBA title claim.
The entirety of the book is filled with hilarious anecdotes relating to the 2x MVP’s, well, improbable rise to becoming an all-time great within the NBA. It also, brilliantly, flips the script on the reader and hits them with several excruciatingly real stories of Giannis and his family trying to survive in Greece while also pursuing basketball.
For now, it’s safe to say that the ensuing anecdote is quite the doozy as it showcases just how much Giannis had had his Greek ways engrained in his mind, well into his stay in Milwaukee.
Giannis hilariously noticed 3 cookies missing from his jar of Oreos.
Unfortunately for Jason Kidd, Fader’s book did not do him any justice. Several excerpts let NBA fans in on his unorthodox and near, maniacal approaches to coaching up his Bucks teams. However, when it comes to this cookie story, it’s safe to say that he was not the culprit in sneaking in a couple Oreos from Giannis’s cookie jar.
According to Mirin, during Antetokounmpo’s rookie season, he needed to have several ethernet cables installed in his room. Of course, he did not trust the workers and so the Bucks VP sent scout, Daniel Marks to supervise. During the installment, Marks got a bit hungry and took about 3 Oreos from a cookie jar that had 30 of them in it.
Giannis immediately took notice and called him out on it. “When I left, I had thirty Oreos, and I came back there’s three missing,” said the ‘Greek Freak’.

Though this is quite an amusing story for most, it just goes to show how protective he was with his food given the nature of his upbringing back in Greece.
