Rick Pitino had a message for Giannis in front of Greece’s game against New Zealand

By Eurohoops team/ info@eurohoops.net

Brazil got a narrow win over Greece yesterday (4/9) and the winning side’s coach Aleksandar Petrovic shared some enthusiastic comments at the press conference about Alex Garcia stopping Giannis Antetokounmpo. To be precise, ‘kicking his ass’.

Rick Pitino reacted to those comments on his Twitter: “Brazil beats Greece by one at the buzzer and the Coach boasts they kicked the ass of one of the best players on the planet. One of my favorite things about Giannis Antetokounmpo is he would never make a comment like that. He carries himself with great humility. Bring it vs NZ (New Zealand) big fella!“, he wrote.
