What happened between reporter Malika Andrews and Giannis Antetokounmpo? Malika Andrews ESPN career
The Greek professional basketball player Giannis Antetokounmpo walked out of his post-game press conference. Bucks lost in Game 6 in Toronto. Similarly, the ESPN reporter Malika Andrews who covered the Bucks all season asked a question about the merits of how much experience matters in these tight playoff scenarios.
But, he did not answer it and he got up and left. After that, the American professional basketball player was perplexed, to say the least. It was hard for her to get into Giannis’s head and figure out what happened. It was whether and what combination was that aggregate frustration over losing the series, a disdain for the question or anything specifically to do with Andrews.
Malika Andrews report on Giannis
Giannis revealed that he was unhappy about the report that Malika wrote. ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said,
“So inside of a 15- to 20-minute period after losing the game, he was made aware of an article that [Andrews] had written where basically she did her homework, spoke to a multitude of people and was thoroughly informed that, again, a lot of his, you know, decision-making as it pertains to his willingness to stay in Milwaukee are tied to reaching the NBA Finals. If Milwaukee’s progress towards the Finals is impeded in any way, this season, next season, etc. at some point in time, he’s going to want his way out. In a period of 20 minutes, in the immediate aftermath of suffering the most devastating loss of his professional career, he got wind of that story, and he was not happy about it.”
The report made by Andrew stated that the possibility that Antetokounmpo may want to leave Milwaukee if the team does not make enough improvements to reach the NBA Finals in the next season. But he has been fiercely loyal to the Bucks and it’s fair to wonder about his future.
