Giannis Antetokounmpo Throws Some Shade The Miami Heat’s Way

Giannis is keeping things real.

Out of all his losses in his NBA career, his worst loss may have come in the playoffs back in 2020, which was the bubble season.

The Bucks lost to the Miami Heat in five games. While speaking to The Athletic, Giannis had some shade for the Heat.

Giannis was doing an interview for The Athletic’s 75 greatest NBA players of all-time list, when he decided to throw the Heat’s Bubble season right under the bus.

“I came in with a chip on my shoulder, I knew what the deal was,” Giannis said. “It was one of my best years I’ve ever had in my career, offensively and defensively… Year seven ended with Miami. I don’t make excuses as an athlete, but it wasn’t a satisfying year for me because I felt like if it was a normal situation, it wouldn’t end up like that. But at the end of the day, I felt like Miami was built to be an NBA bubble team.”

Giannis was able to sweep the Heat the following  season, which was out of the bubble.

The Lakers won the Bubble season, which may or  may not deserve an asterisk. It’s up for debate for sure.
