While Giannis Antetokounmpo is loved by all, well almost all, it would seem that he has a newfound hater in Stan Van Gundy.

Today’s Bucks vs Celtics game had one notable problem, the commentating from Stan Van Gundy. While he may be well respected in the coaching circles, fans will certainly not appreciate his calls, and neither will Giannis Antetokounmpo.

It looked as though he was overly critical of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Stan was calling out every attempt and shot that the Greek freak made.

He also heaped a ton of praise on Robert Williams. While he may be a great defender, he is not the best, and Giannis’ 40 tonight proved that there is not much a good defense can do about him.

It looks as though, Stan Van Gundy hates Giannis Antetokounmpo. Perhaps dislike might be a better-suited word but you get the point.

Dissecting Stan’s calls on Giannis Antetokounmpo

Stan does make a good point about why Giannis should stop shooting threes.

However, as Shaq says, a big-time player will continue to take these shots. And, Giannis made a crucial one that put the Bucks within 3 with just 1:40 remaining.

We can almost feel Stan’s distaste for that shot. However, we don’t think Giannis cares. The Bucks head home with a 3-2 lead and will do all they can to close it out.
