Video: Giannis Antetokounmpo almost goes buck wild on Donta Hall after getting thrown to ground
Giannis was sent to the ground while jockeying for position with Donta Hall under the rim. As he got up, Antetokounmpo offered a few choice words to Hall. Officials were forced to intervene in the scuffle.
Apparently, Giannis told Hall that he was going to “F him up.” A legit heated moment:
Doing my best to read lips and this is what I gathered: “I’m gonna f— you up!” Giannis yelled at Donta Hall when he got up. Ref gets in the middle, Giannis looked at the ref and said, “I’m gonna f— him up.”
