Giannis Antetokounmpo delivers a powerful message bigger than basketball after game 3 against the Toronto Raptors


The series between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks have taken a new turn after game 3 in which the Raptors were able to snatch a win after 2 overtimes. Kawhi Leonard was once again the best player on the floor providing crucial plays in the crunch time. It's also important to stress out that the Bucks best player Giannis didn't have a great game offensively scoring only 12 points, however, he did grab 23 rebounds but that wasn't enough to secure a much-needed win in Toronto.

After the game, Giannis was the last one to leave the locker room and in an interview, Malika Andrews from ESPN answered obvious questions whether he is disappointed in his performance in game 3. Giannis would continue to say something very remarkable and mature about the notion of disappointment in a basketball game and showed great class.

Hell No! I am Giannis," "What I have done in my life so far -- sending money to my family, put my brothers in private schools, taking care of the family in Nigeria and Greece. Disappointed in a game? I'd be disappointed in myself if I was disappointed."
