Giannis Antetokounmpo has backed up his teammate Brook Lopez following his altercation with Trey Lyles against the Sacramento Kings, which saw him get ejected. “I got your back! I’m never going to let him do that sh** to you,” said Antetokounmpo in his post-match interview. Giannis was fouled while dribbling out the clock, and Lopez was not a fan of the unnecessary foul on his leader. Lopez got into a shoving match with Lyles resulting in both of them being ejected.

I appreciate Brook having my back. That’s my guy. Not just on the court. Off the court for life, that’s my guy. Going to pay for his techs,” said Giannis. The Greek Freak and Lopez have developed a special relationship with the Milwaukee Bucks over the last five years. Giannis volunteered to pay for Brook’s technical fouls, as he was the reason Brook got into the altercation in the first place.

The Milwaukee Bucks did pick up a win in Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first game back from injury as the Bucks strengthened their grip on the first seed. Giannis dropped a masterful 46 points in his first game, showing no signs of slowing down. Lopez secured 23 points against the Sacramento Kings and has formed a towering duo with Giannis on the Bucks’ frontcourt.

The Greek Freak is averaging a career-high in points this season while being elite on the defensive end. Giannis Antetokounmpo would have been the frontrunner for the MVP if not for Joel Embiid leading the league in points and Nikola Jokic averaging a triple-double. These three foreign big men have taken the NBA by storm by leading their franchises toward to top of their conference.

The Milwaukee Bucks were without Khris Middleton last season, but with him back this year and Jrue Holiday being an all-star, the Milwaukee Bucks look championship ready. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks fell to the Boston Celtics in 7 games last season despite the Greek Freak putting up great numbers throughout the playoffs.

Embiid and Jokic have dominated the MVP debate this season, mainly due to Kendrick Perkins and JJ Redick forcing narratives on First Take. Giannis has quietly secured a playoff berth for Milwaukee and hopefully will get more recognition from voters for his MVP case. Giannis is already a 2x MVP which makes it unlikely for him to win, given Embiid has finished 2nd for two years running and probably deserves it this season.
