Giannis Antetokounmpo jokes about defenders flopping against him
Giannis Antetokounmpo is using humor to vent about one of his frustrations with opposing defenses.
The Milwaukee Bucks star took to Twitter on Sunday to share a funny video of a waddling toddler making contact with the leg of an adult and dramatically falling over backwards. Antetokounmpo captioned the video by saying, “Every time I get in the paint” with a facepalm emoji.

The reigning MVP Antetokounmpo, who is averaging career-highs with 30.0 points and 13.5 rebounds per game this season for the NBA-best Bucks, is perhaps the single most devastating player going to the basket today. It has gotten to the point that opponents often do have to fish for an offensive foul as their only hope of containing him.
Antetokounmpo recently shaded one of the league’s more notorious floppers, and it is clear that he is not a fan of the practice as a whole either.
