A couple of months ago, Giannis Antetokounmpo was wrapped up in a ridiculous controversy. After a subpar night in Philadelphia, he went back out on the court to shoot some free throws. The staff on the court refused to move a ladder for him and it ended with him tossing the ladder aside. During All-Star Weekend, in true Giannis form, he poked fun at the ladder incident.
Giannis has been TROLLING this entire weekend 😭😂pic.twitter.com/Z82RdtQ2hC

Giannis Pokes Fun At Ladder Incident During All-Star Weekend
During the Saturday night festivities, Antetokounmpo found himself next to a couple of ladders. All-Star Weekend has a lot of set up and take down in a short amount of time so this type of thing is common. In the video above, you see him run up to the ladder and give it a little shake with the biggest smile on his face. It drew some laughs from those around him as well. Obviously, he has not forgotten about how ridiculous that situation was and wanted to poke some fun at it.

Honestly, I forgot this happened until I saw this video. This was such a silly controversy that I am not surprised we have all let it go. While it was not a great decision in the moment, no one was injured and there has not been any kind of incident since. It’s a one off situation that most likely won’t happen again. What I love is that Giannis always seems to be having fun. Throughout the weekend, he looked like he was having the time of his life. As a Bucks fan, you love to see your favorite player having a good time.
The final third of the season is upon us. The Bucks are riding a huge win streak and look to keep it going out of the break. The wrist injury is cause for some concern but the hope is that it is nothing too serious. The Bucks looked primed for a deep Eastern Conference run but definitely need their best player.
