Video: NBA Megastar Lashes Out at Innocent Arena Employees After Loss, Refuses to Apologize

Ask any sports fan older than 25 about their favorite basketball player, and you’ll likely get some sort of historical comparison.

Devin Booker? Probably the closest player to Kobe Bryant there has ever been. Luka Doncic? His transcendent passing and non-stop trash-talking make him Larry Bird 2.0. Ja Morant? Comparisons to the early years of Michael Jordan are actually apt for him.

But there is one player who defies all historical comparisons, and that’s NBA champion, Finals MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and two-time regular season MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

He simply has no comparisons, which is why the “Greek Freak” nickname is so well-suited to him. He is, by all measures, a genuine freak of nature. A 7-footer who can basically play all five positions on a basketball court? That’s unheard of.

But if there is one glaring weakness in Antetokounmpo’s game, it’s his free throw and three-point shooting. For his career, Antetokounmpo has shot 29 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent at the charity stripe. Both marks are below the league average this year. Antetokounmpo has struggled mightily from the free throw line the last two games, shooting a combined 8 for 26.

So nobody could blame Antetokounmpo for wanting to practice some free throws after his Milwaukee Bucks lost 110-102 to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. After all, it’s his job to be the best player he can be.

There was just one problem — workers at the Wells Fargo Center (home of the Sixers) needed to do their jobs and start dismantling the court.

Unfortunately for the typically affable and jovial Antetokounmpo, the entire ordeal was caught on camera:

Antetokounmpo appeared to take issue with workers putting a ladder in front of the rim while he was trying to shoot, and he forcibly moved it, causing the ladder to crash down. Suffice it to say it wasn’t a good look for a player who is all but primed to become the face of the league with LeBron James’ star and playoff hopes dwindling.

When Antetokounmpo spoke…
