Giannis Antetokounmpo admits that Raptors Superfan Nav annoys him the most
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have developed a heated rivalry with defending champions Toronto Raptors in recent years. Apart from having to deal with the likes of Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam, the reigning NBA MVP revealed that he also finds Raptors superfan Nav Bhatia extremely annoying when he visits the Scotiabank Bank Arena.
During an Instagram live Q&A session on Friday, Antetokounmpo was asked by the Raptors global ambassador Drake who is the most annoying person to play in front of.
Instead of choosing the hip hop icon, the Greek Freak quickly singled out “the superfan with the beard” who likes to talk a lot of trash.
Nav Bhatia quickly responded to Giannis’ comments and said dinner will be on him the next time the Bucks are in town.
Hahaha @Giannis_An34 love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch @Drake then the superfan 🙂 dinner on me next time #staysafe https://t.co/NVbwAtNVSJ

Bhatia has been attending Raptors home games since the team’s inception in 1995.
The Raptors organization honored his dedication by presenting him with a championship ring in their season opener.
The Bucks and Raptors, meanwhile, have both fared well in the 2019-20 NBA campaign so far, following their intense Eastern Conference Finals series last year.
Prior to the hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis, Milwaukee held the best record in the league at 53-12. Antetokounmpo is once again a frontrunner for his second-straight MVP plum, notching brilliant averages of 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 block in 57 games.
