Bucks’ Bobby Portis destroys reporter who takes jab at his playoff experience
Bobby Portis just annihilated a reporter after some slander was thrown at his name. The new Milwaukee Bucks forward replied to a now-deleted tweet from Marc Berman of the New York Post stating that the 25-year old still has “zero playoff games under his belt”.
Portis quickly took to his own Twitter account to respond to Berman that he actually has played in six post-season games so far and added a few colorful words directed to the New York-based reporter.
“I actually have 6 you d***head. Some reporter you are.” Portis tweeted.

Just to refresh Berman’s memory, as well as the other BP doubters out there, Portis — before going to the Bucks — was actually a key member off the bench of the 2016-2017 Chicago Bulls unit led by Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade. That was Portis’ second year in the league after being selected as the 22nd overall pick by the Bulls in 2015.
Bucks fans might know that in his playoff debut the season after, the former McDonald’s All-American exploded for a playoff career-high of 19 points and added nine rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench. The Bulls ended up winning the first two games of their first-round match-up against the Boston Celtics before eventually dropping the next four.
After his lone season in New York last year, Portis is hoping to boost the Bucks’ frontcourt with his size and scoring ability. Though the Arkansas native hasn’t really found the right fit so far in his career, having a reigning Defensive Player of the Year and back-to-back MVP title holder in Giannis Antetokounmpo should only boost Portis’ confidence even more.
If Portis can stay healthy and things go the Bucks’ way this coming season, a ton of more playoff games will be added to his resume.
