Giannis Antetokounmpo warns Knicks forward against disrespecting him again
Giannis Antetokounmpo issued a warning against New York Knicks forward Mario Hezonja for disrespecting him during Saturday’s game.
Hezonja grabbed a steal and threw down a dunk in the first quarter of the game. Antetokounmpo tried to contest the dunk from behind and fell to the court. Hezonja then stepped over Antetokounmpo after the power jam — an act that is interpreted as a major sign of disrespect. Hezonja was taken out of the game after that and did not return.
After the game, the Milwaukee Bucks star said next time he would punch Hezonja in the groin.

Giannis isn’t messing around. He was probably equally upset that his team lost 136-134 in overtime.
Who knew we’d have to circle the next meeting between the Bucks and Knicks as a must-watch game?
