Giannis Antetokounmpo jokingly reading ‘trash talk’ to Jokić, Durant, LeBron is brilliant

Giannis Antetokounmpo swung by Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with guest host Hasan Minhaj — a huge NBA fan — to promote the Charles Antetokounmpo Foundation and talk a little American culture (like Antetokounmpo’s first taste of classic American sweets).

But Minhaj wanted trash talk — which Minhaj wrote for Antetokounmpo targeting Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokić, Kevin Durant and LeBron James. Antetokounmpo played along and it is classic.

The best part of this is just how uncomfortable Antetokounmpo is with it, this does not come naturally to him.

No way this doesn’t come up again during the NBA playoffs.
