Giannis Antetokounmpo is known for many things. For one, his sense of humor and joke-telling have made him one of the most enjoyable players to watch being interviewed. Additionally, Giannis led the Milwaukee Bucks to a NBA Championship without linking up with other stars to form a Super Team. On Monday night, Giannis appeared as a guest on The Daily Show. In a scripted segment, he hilariously (and jokingly) destroyed Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant for jumping teams:
"You keep joining superteams to win an NBA title. How about we workout together sometime so I can teach you how to carry your own team."

“You keep joining super teams to win an NBA title. How about we workout together sometime so I can teach you how to carry your own team.”
Durant, of course, left the Oklahoma City Thunder to join Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on the Golden State Warriors. In his brief stint with the Warriors, Durant won two NBA Championships and two Finals MVP Awards. He then went to the Brooklyn Nets to team up with James Harden and Kyrie Irving.
We all know how that turned out.
Now, Durant has been traded to the Phoenix Suns where he forms a super team of sorts with Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton.
It’s still Bucks in Six.
