NBA star issues threat after opponent's disrespect


//

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has threatened to punch New York Knicks guard Mario Hezonja after a disrespectful 'step over' in the Bucks' loss to the Knicks. 

The incident occurred during the first quarter of New York's shock win over the Bucks as Antetokounmpo attempted to block a dunk attempt by Hezonja.

After the Croatian successfully avoided the block, he purposely stepped over the man known as the 'Greek Freak' who was sprawled on the ground after the failed block attempt, prompting the Madison Square Garden crowd to go wild.

However, after the game, Antetokounmpo was left less than impressed by Hezonja's antics. 

"I'm going to punch him in the nuts next time," he told reporters when asked about the incident. 

Not one to shy away from his antics, the Croatian guard did not back away and had a clear message to his opponent.

"Honestly, if you’re afraid, this is not for you," he said.

"I don’t want to be disrespectful, but if you feel fear this is not the place for you, New York is not a place for you and this team is not a place for you."

Following the back and forth between the duo, fans quickly started to realise that Hezonja would have to face the league's leading MVP candidate in back-to-back games beginning on Christmas Day.
