Giannis Antikonmo on the Lopez Struggle

Giannis Antikonmo on the Lopez Struggle

Focused on the match and not so much on what happened in the final, he announced that it was Giannis Antetokounmpo, and as a result didn’t realize why Brook Lopez and Trey Lyles connected. However, he has stood up for his teammate by the fact that he is always there to protect him, at a time when in some cases his kindness is seen as a weakness.

With the Bucks already up by eight points and the game ending in Sacramento, the Trey Lyles Kings had no reason to push Giannis Antetokounmo.

Brook Lopez, seeing his opponent getting unnecessarily close, became enraged and verbally assaulted him, leading to a fight between them that inevitably resulted in evictions from both sides.

Naturally asked about the incident, The Greek Freak questioned the usefulness of such an act by Lyles and commended Lopez for always being there to defend him, on and off the field.

I’m just trying to play. To be honest, I didn’t see what happened. I was told he pushed me from behind. I didn’t see if he pushed me because I didn’t have eye contact and I didn’t fall while continuing to move. But Brock got upset, and he It usually doesn’t happen, and he yelled at him Don’t do that again, don’t make me like that again.

Only then did I realize he pushed me in the back. I appreciate Brock’s got my back, he’s my man, on and off the field he’ll be my man for life. Personally, I stay away from such situations and focus on the game, but there are those who see my kindness as a weakness. The team is there to protect me and I appreciate that they do that for me.

I know what my turn is. My role is to help the team win with my skills. There are times when I get upset and clash with others if boundaries are crossed. It’s happened in the past, but in an eight-point game I don’t see a reason you should come and argue with someone. However, admittedly, the team always stands behind me to protect meYannis confirmed in this regard.
