Giannis Antetokounmpo head-butted himself right out of this ball game.
Not all is pleasant in the NBA‘s beautiful basketball bubble. Thriving in captivity is never easy, not even if you’re The Greek Freak and the star of the Milwaukee Bucks. Being in Florida for that long will do a number on you, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Giannis took being a Buck a little too far by head-butting Wagner right in front of Coach Bud and the rest of the world.
Giannis Antetokounmpo told Moritz Wagner to get the Buck out of here.
When you can derive the same face of chippy, frustrating confusion out of Coach Bud, you did something on the hardwood. Giannis will have to go put his Mickey Mouse ears on and walk back to his dorm room because he’s been bad tonight. If he didn’t bring his trusted Goofy hat to the facility, surely the Brothers Lopez will help their Buck brother out. Of course, they’ve got extra.
There are people who tuned in to watch the Bucks beat the Washington Wizards, but not like this. Then pen is usually mightier than the sword, but sometimes, you just don’t go no paper and you still got something to say. Actions speak volumes. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Thank god for Twitter, as this magical moment will live forever on the internet.
While the Bucks look to win their first NBA Finals since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson played for them back in the early 1970s, Wagner will be looking for an ice pack or an uncooked steak to put over his face. I mean, he just got head-butted by a 7-foot Buck. When Wagner woke up today, this couldn’t have been one of the million things he may have expected would happen.
It’s a small world after all when you’re living inside of a bubble. Truman Burbank did it for a long time before he found out his entire life was a lie. It’ll only be a few more weeks before Giannis and the Bucks can leave the Orlando bubble and head back to the Midwest. It might be hunting season by then for all we know. Maybe the Green Bay Packers will still be undefeated? Who knows?
Giannis used his head unintelligently and we’re all grateful for the viral content he just created.
