"I’m going to f*** him up": Giannis Snaps In Ugly Spat With NBA Rival

"I’m going to f*** him up": Giannis Snaps In Ugly Spat With NBA Rival

He's normally the sweet-talking, 6 foot 9 inch nice guy of the NBA.

But this time, the red mist descended on Giannis Antetokounmpo as he was left fuming after one ugly incident in particular.

A raging Antetokounmpo had to be restrained by game officials after launching himself at Donta Hall on Wednesday.

During the NBA clash between Giannis' Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets, the man dubbed the 'Greek Freak' was knocked to the ground while tussling with Hall for position underneath the basket.

Quickly jumping back to his feet after the hard fall, the reigning NBA MVP - and front runner for this year's award - went to confront Hall with clenched fists before being pulled away by two referees and his fellow teammates.

As he was being dragged from the scene, the towering Bucks forward was seen saying: "I'm going to f*** him up".

Both players were awarded personal fouls for the incident as the Nets went on to upset the Bucks in a 119-116 victory.

The loss means Giannis and the Bucks are now 1-2 at Walt Disney World having lost to another rival over the weekend.

James Harden - a player who has history with Antetokounmpo - ensured life in the Orlando bubble didn't start smoothly for Eastern Conference favourites Milwaukee as he dropped 24 points while Russell Westbrook dropped 31 in a 120-116 win.

And now the Bucks' losing streak has been extended to two games with tensions clearly starting to mount on star man Giannis' slender shoulders.
