Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was vowing vengeance for an act he perceived as disrespect throughout Milwaukee’s loss to the Knicks on Saturday night time in New York.
Knicks ahead Mario Hezonja dunked on Antetokounmpo within the first quarter, then stared and stepped over him — a lot to the delight of the Madison Sq. Backyard crowd.
The Bucks’ star did not respect what occurred.
“I am going to punch him within the (groin) subsequent time,” stated Antetokounmpo, who had 33 factors and 19 rebounds in Milwaukee’s 136-134 additional time defeat.
The groups subsequent meet Christmas Day in New York.
Hezonja, who was unaware of Antetokounmpo’s displeasure, did observe the group’s response to his solely bucket of the sport.
“Actually, for those who’re afraid, this isn’t for you,” Hezonja stated. “I do not need to be disrespectful, however for those who really feel concern, this isn’t the place for you. New York just isn’t a spot for you, and this group just isn’t a spot for you.”
