(This is a great read that just gives the appropriate weight to the rise of Giannis… who, after getting benched once, googled coach Jason Kidd’s accomplishments…)
The first time Kidd benched him, Antetokounmpo was irate. “I was like, ‘Let’s see what this guy did in his career, anyway,’ ” Antetokounmpo recounts, and called up Kidd’s bio on his phone. “I saw Rookie of the Year, NBA championship, USA Olympic gold medal, second in assists, fifth in made threes, blah, blah, blah. I was like, ‘Jesus freaking Christ, how can I compete with that? I better zip it.’ ”
Alas, the buzzer beater was also called by Bucks broadcaster, and one of the greats, Gus Johnson. He does this one justice.
