Giannis Antetokounmpo loses it after discovering girlfriend was a Lakers fan

Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to need a minute.

During a recent Instagram live with girlfriend Mariah Riddlesprigger, the NBA star was stunned to discover she once preferred another team to his Milwaukee Bucks.

“I was a Laker fan growing up,” Riddlesprigger said, doubling-down on “growing up.”

Eventually collecting himself, Antetokounmpo joked, “Oh no, I gotta stop the live now.” Riddlesprigger, who welcomed a son with Antetokounmpo earlier this year, hails from Fresno, Calif.

Before the NBA season was indefinitely suspended because of the coronavirus outbreak, the Bucks and Lakers owned the top seed in their respective conferences and the possibility of an NBA Finals showdown looms if the season re-starts.

The Greek Freak, who was selected 15th overall by the Bucks in 2013 and is the reigning MVP, has been keeping busy amid the NBA’s suspension due to coronavirus.

On Wednesday, he documented a “couple challenge” with Riddlesprigger on Instagram, revealing he initiated the pair’s first kiss.
