Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Ex-Agent Bashes Drake for Mid-Game Trolling After Toronto Raptors Win
Drake is catching heat for his excessive trolling during the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals games between his beloved Toronto Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Georgios Dimitropoulos, a senior executive for Octagon—the agency that represents Bucks superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo—has had enough of Drizzy’s “disrespectful” trolling. In a now-deleted tweet he posted Wednesday (May 22), the executive lashed out at Drizzy for his mid-game antics.
In the tweet, Dimitropoulos, whom ESPN says used to act as Giannis' agent when he still played professional basketball in Europe, wrote, "Imagine a gig & an athlete on VIP seats, right next to the band, stands up on the stage just to show off during the entire game, knowing cameras are on him, occasionally even massaging the singer. Security (and) him both allow it."
“Never seen anything as disrespectful as this before...,” he added.
In dispute is Drake’s courtside celebrations at Game 4 on Tuesday night (May 21). At different points of the game, Giannis was struggling on the court, at one particular moment, the one that saw the Greek Freak miss some free throws, Drizzy mocks Giannis from the sidelines. In another clip, the Toronto rapper is getting upset over a referee's call against the Raptors. There’s also footage of Drake giving Raptors’ coach Nick Nurse a neck massage as his team managed an impressive lead against the Bucks.
Giannis’ struggles during the game helped the Raptors even the series at 2-2 after the Bucks started with a 2-0 lead. Game 5 is scheduled for Thursday night.
The rep's comments come after the Raptors organization gifted their global ambassador (Drizzy) with a custom-made, diamond-encrusted sports jacket worth $550,000. Drake received the lavish jacket from Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment before the start of Game 4.
“This is truly a one of one piece,” said the jacket's designer Micheal Nguyen. “Both the jersey inside, which Drake himself helped design, and this very special piece of cloth. And the diamonds, of course.”
