After the game, things got heated between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Montrezl Harrell.
After posting 25 points and 14 rebounds in his team’s loss, the 27-year-old Greek superstar shot free throws on the Wells Fargo Center’s court, since he only went 4/15 at the charity stripe during the game.
At that moment, Montrezl Harrell took the ball from him. “This isn’t f… Milwaukee. Get that shit out of there”, he apparently yelled according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.
Then, Giannis Antetokounmpo came back with two basketballs after leaving the court for the first time and pushed an employee’s ladder to the floor away from the front of the hoop, showing a lot of anger.
“I never try to disrespect anyone, in any way shape, or form. I feel like today was just an unfortunate event that took place. I think people did not respect the fact that sometimes players want to get some extra work in. I think it’s unprofessional to kick somebody off the court or take the ball or whatever the case might be. Or put the ladder in front of somebody while he’s trying to do his job. We get paid to do this. They didn’t just pick us. We get paid”, Giannis Antetokounmpo said after the incident.
Giannis Antetokounmpo wanted to work on his free throws postgame and threw the Wells Fargo employees ladder to the floor.
Bucks lost to the Sixers, 110-102.
