Greek NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to show love for tennis on his Greek vacation in the NBA off-season with a video complimenting Nick Kyrgios’ skills on the court.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Emmanuel Karalis enjoyed a night out last week in Athens celebrating the end to their respective sports seasons.
The three Greek athletes have continued their relaxation period travelling across Greece, last being spotted sun-baking on a stretch of beach.
In a video reposted by Nick Kyrgios, Giannis complimented the Greek-Australian tennis star saying he was ‘nuts’, but is a big fan of his talent.
“I love him, I do love him, I’m a big fan,” Antetokounmpo said about Kyrgios.
“Bro, I was watching your 10 minutes of the madness of Kyrgios’ video. Bro, you’re nuts but I still love you.”
The Greek NBA player also made reference to his famous Washington Open 2019 match versus Yoshihito Nishioka. During the match, Kyrgios was caught throwing a water bottle at the base of the umpires chair, claiming it ‘slipped out of his hand’.
Tsitsipas and Antetokounmpo teased Kyrgios a few days ago as well in another video shared by Tsitsipas. The world number seven tennis player told his friend Kyrgios that Antetokounmpo had a message for him.
The NBA star proceeded to say, “Well, Nick, you were my favourite tennis athlete. But now it’s Nadal because I just love him, sorry.”
