Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks have developed a rivalry with defending champions in recent years. The NBA MVP revealed that he finds Raptors superfan Nav Bhatia extremely annoying when he visits the Scotiabank Bank Arena.
During an Instagram live Q&A session on Friday, Antetokounmpo was asked by Drake who is the most annoying person to play in front of.
Instead of choosing the Canadian rapper, the Giannis quickly mentioned “the superfan with the beard” who likes to talk a lot of trash.
Nav Bhatia quickly responded to Giannis’ comments and said dinner will be on him the next time the Bucks are in town.
Hahaha @Giannis_An34 love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch @Drake then the superfan 🙂 dinner on me next time #staysafe https://t.co/NVbwAtNVSJ— Nav Bhatia Superfan (@superfan_nav) March 28, 2020
Bhatia has been attending Raptors home games since the team’s inception in 1995.
The Raptors organization gifted him with a championship ring in their season opener.
Prior to the hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis, Milwaukee held the best record in the league at 53-12. Antetokounmpo is once again a frontrunner for his second-straight MVP plum, notching brilliant averages of 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 block in 57 games.
The Raptors. on the other hand, secured second place in the East with a 46-18 slate, despite losing Kawhi Leonard to the Los Angeles Clippers in free agency over the summer.
