Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo

On Friday night, in the moments after the Bucks lost to the Lakers, a fan speaking in Greek said something obnoxious enough to draw the ire of Giannis Anteokounmpo and his brother/teammate Thanasis while they made their way back to the locker room. The exchange was caught by reporter Lauren Jones:

It's usually not a great practice to simply trust unknown social media people for translations but A.) We're desperate to know what provoked a reaction, and B.) A lot of these users seem to be saying the same thing. Namely that something was said regarding asses and chicken. 

Though he had a couple of rough stretches, Giannis finished the night with 32 points and 11 rebounds. Milwaukee lost 113-103. He also had a scary fall but remained in the game, though he looked like he was limping off the court late. Afterward, he insisted his knee was "good." In either event, maybe he was still pissed about it, and also this isn't how you recruit a guy.
