Giannis Antetokounmpo was expecting a familiar face in the post-game interview right after the Milwaukee Bucks finally snapped that ugly five-game slide against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. While talking to the media after leading his team to a 98-85 win at Fiserv Forum, The Greek Freak looked for former Bucks beat reporter Matt Velasquez, with whom he developed a nice relationship over the years.
Turns out, the sports scribe already resigned from his post with the Journal Sentinel and already moved to Indianapolis with his wife. This left the reigning NBA MVP heartbroken since he did not even bid goodbye to Giannis. The Bucks superstar hilariously claimed that he thought he and Velasquez were much closer than that.
