ESPN NBA analyst richard jefferson trolled Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo after LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 title over the Miami Heat at Walt Disney World.
Jefferson, who was part of the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers team which won the championship with James leading the way, used the latest trend on social media to troll Antetokounmpo.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made NBA history this season by becoming the third player ever to win Defensive Player of the Year and MVP in the same campaign, joining Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon.
However, the Bucks lost to the Heat in the second round of the playoffs in five games.
LeBron James, meanwhile, won his fourth Finals MVP, becoming the first player in NBA history to win three Finals MVP awards with three different teams (Cavs, Heat, Lakers). The King continues to make NBA history despite being 35 years old and having so many miles on his body.
In the Finals against the Heat, James averaged 29.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game while shooting 59.1 percent from the field, 41.7 percent from beyond the arc and 66.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Richard Jefferson is clearly just having some fun at the expense of Antetokounmpo. The former NBA forward has always been an enjoyable follow on Twitter because of posts like this.
Moving forward, Antetokounmpo will be under immense pressure to win a championship since that is the only thing he hasn’t accomplished in the NBA yet. Giannis can sign the supermax extension with the Bucks this offseason.
