“You won’t find a guy that’s more…”-Damian Lillard backs his teammate from mass trolling on social media

Damian Lillard showcased excellent team spirit by defending Thanasis Antetokounmpo from heavy trolling and criticism on social media. Thanasis has become a laughing stock for millions of Milwaukee Bucks supporters on the internet for his cemented position in the team despite his continuous “garbage” performances in the NBA.

Thanasis has faced relatively more backlash on social media because he is the brother of one of the greatest ever players to grace the NBA, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Fans believe that being Giannis’ brother is the sole reason behind Thanasis’ cemented place in the Milwaukee Bucks roster.

Damian Lillard opens up on Thanasis Antetokounmpo

“I see the stuff on social media about TA (Thanasis). A lot of guys might feel like they’re more talented or have more ability, but they could never take his spot. People try to be funny. I would put good money that a lot of people talking on Twitter wouldn’t be able to beat him one-on-one. “ Lillard said.

Damian Lillard opened up on how crucial Thanasis is for the Milwaukee Bucks. Damian Lillard talked about his top-notch physical and defensive abilities on the court.

“Defensively, he’s big, he’s strong, he’s athletic, he’s aggressive, he’s physical. You won’t find a guy that’s more about the team. He shows up and works hard, he’s always in the weight room, on the court getting his work in. He’s the top of the line in his role on our team.”

“I have a hard time seeing anybody coming in that could replace him and what he does for our team. He’s always ready to get in the game and do what he has to do. Being someone who’s been behind closed doors with him, I respect him a lot.”

Though Thansis Antetokounmpo’s game is based on his defensive solidity and physical prowess, it is not enough for any team to keep playing him for more than 5 years. Thanasis has averaged just 1.0 points this season in 23 appearances for the Bucks. This worrying run of form is what makes the fans think that Thanasis’ basketball career was given not earned.
