Video: Giannis Antetokounmpo calls out Trae Young’s antics in Milwaukee huddle

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Trae Young, Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was visibly frustrated with his teammates after the Bucks’ defense basically got embarrassed by Trae Young and his antics. The former DPOY had to wake his team up in a dead-ball situation, suggesting his team should do a better job closing out on the Hawks’ shooters – especially the red-hot Young.

For what it’s worth, Giannis’ shimmy was way better than Trae’s:

Here’s the Trae Young play in question. After crossing Jrue Holiday out of the picture, the Hawks guard had a ton of space (and time) to knock down a wide-open trey. Young was so open that he actually had time to adjust his shooting form, which eventually appeared to be quite an awesome shimmy:

It has been a seesaw battle in Game 1, and plays like these are totally unacceptable if you’re a team that prides yourself on defense like Milwaukee. But then again, Young has been quite surgical all game long in trying to dissect and expose the Bucks’ defense.

You’d love to see the fire and passion from the two-time MVP, though. As the team’s leader both offensively and defensively, Antetokounmpo must find ways to make sure he leads this squad to an important Game 1 win. And with the Bucks, it starts on defense.
