Haynes are to believed, Giannis also refused the ‘King’ on his offers to workout together.
On the latest episode of the Posted Up podcast, Haynes reported that Giannis does not work out with anyone who isn’t on his team.
“Giannis doesn’t workout with anybody that’s not on his team. He doesn’t do that. He’s turned down working out with LeBron James and turned down being part of the ‘Space Jam 2’ movie. Giannis doesn’t do that.”

The ‘Greek Freak’ refusing to workout with LeBron is not a sign of disrespect on his part, it’s just the way he does things. He has time and again reiterated the fact that LeBron James is the ‘best player in the world’.
