Giannis’ Advice To Thon Maker: ‘If You Hesitate, I’m Going To Punch You’ (VIDEO)
The Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo knows the potential his 20-year-old teammate, Thon Maker, has, and he wants him to be mare aggressive when he gets the ball.
During Friday night in the Milwaukee Bucks’ 108-105 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons, Maker did just that, scoring a career-high 23 points on 12 shots in just 24 minutes.
After the game, Giannis gave his teammate a bit of motivation to make sure he keeps shooting more and more, or suffer the consequences.
“I told him, to play in this game, you don’t have to hesitate. If you hesitate, I told him – I actually told him in the overtime – if you hesitate, I’m going to punch you, so shoot the ball whenever you get it,” he said postgame.
