Giannis Antetokounmpo can now add trash talking to his growing list of skills

Better watch out, Markieff Morris.

Giannis Antetokounmpo seems like a fun-loving, happy, great person to be around off the court. But on the court? Don’t make him mad — you won’t like it. Markieff Morris found that out the hard way when Antetokounmpo bodied him at the rim.

Antetokounmpo made his way to the rim with Morris in the way. The Wizards’ forward kept his position in front of Antetokonunmpo but ended up getting tagged with a foul anyway.

Morris complained about the call, and upon seeing this Antetokounmpo gave him a death stare like no other while screaming “and-one.” Not once, but twice.

Sure, Antetokounmpo is nice. But you don’t ever want to get this look.

That’s that “I WISH YOU WOULD” look. Basically, if you get in front of me again you know what’s going down. And, while Morris didn’t back down, Antetokounmpo was the one who ended up with the bucket and the foul when things were all said and done.

This isn’t a side of Antetokounmpo that we’ve seen before, but like many other great NBA players, when he touches the court things are different. Morris and the Wizards seem to be finding out the hard way.
