Video: Giannis Antetokounmpo puts on crown after scoring against King James’ team
Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Milwaukee Bucks got the best of LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night, and The Greek Freak wanted to make sure everyone knew that.
Antetokounmpo has increased his three-point shooting this season and is now attempting more than five per game. On Thursday, he made a career-high five threes as his Bucks won 111-104.
After the fifth three, which came in the fourth quarter, Giannis pretended to put a crown on his head:
5 3PM FOR GIANNIS

That seemed to be Antetokounmpo’s way of saying to King James that there is a new king, which probably won’t go over with LeBron.
Giannis is currently looking like a favorite to repeat as NBA MVP. The Bucks and Lakers have the two best records in the league.
