Giannis Antetokounmpo suddenly got out of his press conference after the match tonight after Bucks lost in Game 6 in Toronto. ESPN reporter Malika Andrews, who has covered Bucks throughout the season, asked a question about the benefits of how much experience is important in these close playoff scenarios. Instead of answering it, the Greek freak stood up and went. Khris Middleton was alarmed to say the least.
It's hard to get into Antetokounmpo's head here and find out if and what combination this was the total frustration of losing the series, a contempt for the question (it was a fair question), or something specific to do with andrews.
Immediately after Bucks lost, Andrews published a story that examined Gianni's future:
Who knows if Giannis had seen or heard about it history when he went out, but if he might have, he would explain (but not justify) his behavior.
The situation is that until Giannis signs the five-year supermax extension, Bucks can give him in a year people to wonder if he could leave Milwaukee. This is the NBA and the player's movement is discussed more than what actually happens in the game. You can argue about the benefits of being good or bad in totality for the sport, but that is the world we live in.
