The Bucks were in the process of being eliminated by the Bulls in humiliating fashion, and Giannis Antetokounmpo evidently decided that he wasn’t interested in sticking around to see the final result.

Late in the second quarter with his team trailing by 30 points, Antetokounmpo tackled Mike Dunleavy long after he launched a three-point shot that splashed home, and was ejected as a result of his inappropriate actions.

It’s unclear if Dunleavy did anything in this particular game to earn such violence, or if his play throughout the series had gotten under Antetokounmpo’s skin.

Either way, the Bucks are on their way to a long summer vacation, and the young Antetokounmpo decided to head out a little bit earlier than the rest of his teammates.
