Video: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo walks out of presser after ESPN reporter asked about playoff experience
While his age may not play a role for his recent incident, the fact that he walked out in the middle of his press conference after their Game 6 defeat showed an unusual glimpse of immaturity from the Bucks superstar.
Malika Andrews of ESPN asked Giannis whether or not experience played a part in their defeat. For some reason, however, the question seemed to ticked off the Greek Freak who walked out of the presser to the surprise of teammate Khris Middleton and everyone in the room.

Obviously, all of the players in the Bucks roster (with the exception of Pau Gasol who’s injured) have never played in a conference finals before. The Raptors, on the other hand, have made the playoffs in the past three years and have reached the conference finals once. They also have Kawhi Leonard who won the championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014.
It is possible that Giannis was still trying to digest everything that happened, how things fell apart for his team, and how he will bounce back from this loss. This is the first time that he and his team were outplayed this season, so that’s got to hurt for him.
Antetokounmpo will look to bounce back next year though, that’s for sure.
