Giannis yells "I will f**k you up." at coach.

On Saturday night the Milwaukee Bucks struggled against the shorthanded Utah Jazz and were unable to win a single quarter in a game they lost 121-108. The Bucks were thoroughly out shot, especially from the three point line and found themselves turning the ball over 7 more times than this Jazz. One of these turnovers translated into a fit thrown by the Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. He believed he was fouled as he made a layup and began shouting about the non call, obviously frustrated. On the next possession he received the ball at the top of the key and immediately had it stripped, it went the other way for an easy Jazz dunk and that set him off. He stormed the bench, victimizing a chair along the way and then we saw this:

When asked about it, he likened the vulgar abuse to a fight with your brother, just a family argument. I don't know about you but I've never gone at my brother quite like that. I mean I'm sure at some point I've threatened to eat all of his Halloween Candy but I can't help but feel like that's different. Is this anger a sign of whats to come for Bucks coaching staff? Giannis is king in Milwaukee and they'll do what it takes to keep him happy. At the end of the day its a physical, emotional game and this may mean nothing at all. I still have to wonder what assistant coach Sean Sweeney said to provoke such fury.
