Giannis Antetokounmpo gets questioned by Kendrick Perkins despite being the best performer on the team

The past few weeks have been a complete drama for the Milwaukee Bucks. They had a new coach, have a record of 3-7 in the last ten games, and also slipped from the top to the third spot on the points table. Within this drama, Kendrick Perkins questions Giannis Antetokounmpo, ‘What is your excuse?’

Kendrick Perkins said:

“Before you start calling out everybody else, you got to make sure that you hold yourself accountable, do what you need to do, and lead by example.”

In case you missed: The Boston Celtics are the best NBA team!” says Tim Legler

He also mentioned:

“He is going to be a guy who will give 30 points per game. Will be in the MVP conversation and possibly stay at the top.”

“He is one of the players who has always been in the Defensive Player of the Year award conversation and has even won. But since November, he has averaged less than a block per game.”

Undoubtedly, Antetokounmpo has a dip in terms of defensive approach. But when it comes to offense, he is still a beast. The Milwaukee Bucks have struggled in the last ten games, but Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t the problem.

Recently, Antetokounmpo mentioned the changing strategies of the team. In the past few months, different coaches have led the team. Undoubtedly, every head coach has a different approach.

All they need to do is trust each other and believe in the process. Everything will work out if they stay as a team instead of making changes.
