Giannis Antetokounmpo responds to Drake trolling him with wrestling belts
Giannis Antetokounmpo responded after his Milwaukee Bucks’ 108-97 win in Toronto on Tuesday night to Drake trolling him.
Prior to the game, Drake, who is a Raptors ambassador, brought a couple of wrestling title belts with him to his courtside seats.

The belts seemed to have a dual meaning. For one, they could represent the title the Raptors won last season, where they came back in a playoff series to defeat Milwaukee before advancing to the NBA Finals. The other part is that Giannis enjoys wrestling as part of his pregame routine.

Giannis didn’t seem at all bothered by Drake. He had 19 points, 19 rebounds and 8 assists in the win and said after the game that he doesn’t really care about the rapper.
Giannis on Drake trolling him with the two championship belts:
"That's good. He cares about me. I really don't [care about him]. I'm just here to win games and help my team win. That's all."

Drake loves trolling different NBA players as part of his fandom. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to have the negative effect on Giannis he was hoping for.
