Watch: 7-Foot Giannis Antetokounmpo Hilariously Roasts Serge Ibaka's Culinary Skills During Video Call With Jrue Holiday  

Former champion and Bucks forward Serge Ibaka isn’t your quintessential chef, given his rather unusual choices of ingredients when it comes to his cooking. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop the Congolese native from having a cooking show of his own called, How Hungry Are You? where he’d invite his peers from the NBA, serving them food which may not necessarily be appetizing.

Calling him the Mafuzzy Chef, the 6ft 11″ forward would serve his guests dishes and beverages ranging from cricket tea, caterpillar gyros, Octopus, and Pig Brain, to name a few. In the past, we have seen NBA superstars such as Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Giannis Antetokounmpo grace Ibaka’s cooking-interview show.

The most recent to join this list was Bucks teammate Jrue Holiday. During a segment on the show, Ibaka would ask the former All-Star who was the most famous person in his phonebook, to which he replied Giannis Antetokounmpo, leading to Mafuzzy putting their friendship to the test.

Challenging Holiday to Facetime the Greek Freak, Ibaka didn’t know what lay ahead of him.

Taking up Ibaka’s challenge, Holiday would attempt to facetime Giannis, who wouldn’t answer on the first call. Nevertheless, the Mafuzzy Chef would give the Bucks guard another opportunity to try his luck, and what happened next would have all of us in splits.

Holiday’s second attempt to contact the Bucks MVP would have fruitful results, with the latter answering. However, Giannis was in a slightly grumpy mood, given being woken up from his nap.

Speaking to Giannis, Holiday described how Ibaka had him drinking the cricket tea, leaving the Greek Freak with no choice but to call out the ‘alleged chef,’ saying the following.

Well, Giannis certainly had Ibaka tongue-tied, who didn’t have much to say in rebuttal, telling the 7-foot superstar, he’d catch him tomorrow.

The Milwaukee Bucks look to bring home their 3rd NBA championship.

Currently holding a 19-7 record, the Bucks are a top contender to win the east, with their biggest competition being the Boston Celtics. Having won the chip in 2021, Giannis and co have experience on their side and the experience of being in that situation.

With Khris Middleton back in the lineup, the Bucks have their squad complete, with this season being a now-or-never situation when it comes to lifting the Larry O’Brien trophy.
