Stacey King does not know how to pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo. Not even close.
It takes a little practice to say Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name right. The Greek Freak’s name is unusual in Western cultures, and so everyone who has to say it has put in a little practice.
Except, apparently, Bulls color commentator Stacey King. Because this is not even in the ballpark.
I don’t want to knock him because King is an entertaining color guy to listen to — he’s passionate. Yes, a homer for the Bulls, but in a fun way. Plus if you watch the Bulls broadcast you know every once in a while he’s going to do something like this, where he just did not see what was coming.
He’ll get used to it, everyone is going to be saying Antetokounmpo’s name for years to come, this is a player about ready to break out.
