Jaylen Brown executes spot-on troll job of Giannis Antetokounmpo


The NBA season has restarted, and so has the trolling.

Jumping right back into the fray Saturday morning was Jaylen Brown, who mocked Giannis Antetokounmpo on the Celtics' forward's Instagram story after the Bucks' star got what Boston perceived to be some key calls down the stretch of Milwaukee's win.

The image of Giannis Antetokounmpo walking hand-in-hand with an NBA referee was in response two key calls primarily, both of which went for Giannis Antetokounmpo and against the Celtics.

The first was a stoppage of play with just under three minutes left where the referees went to the video in order to determine if Antetokounmpo had purposedly pushed Daniel Theis' midsection. At the time, if the call went against the Bucks' forward he would have fouled out. It was determined, however, that Antetokounmpo hadn't committed a violation.

Then came the pivotal call of the game, with the game tied, when the original call of Antetokounmpo committing an offensive foul was overturned.

“The excuse was I was late on the charge," Smart said to reporters. "They said the replay said I was late and it was a block, but quite frankly I think we all know what that was about: Giannis with six fouls, they didn’t want to get him out. We’ll just call that spade a spade, that’s just what it is."
