• Giannis Antetokounmpo’s “small talk” with Steph Curry was last week’s talk of the town
  • Stephen Curry said that he was trying to team up with Giannis in PUBG
  • Bucks owner’s daughter Mallory Edens said that their star player is loyal

The emergence of Giannis Antetokounmpo from being a project to becoming the league MVP is a story of a team sticking out to their project. Being a great ballhandler for his size, teams may have started trying to steal him before the trade deadline.

A mismatch nightmare for all teams, the Greek Freak is averaging 29.8 points, 12.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 1.2 steals before their matchup against the New York Knicks. Giannis is a special specimen that can euro step his way from the three-point line for a dunk and no team has found an antidote to stop him at full speed.

One of the hot topics of last week in the NBA is what seems to be a small talk between him and Stephen Curry when the Milwaukee Bucks went to San Francisco to beat the Golden State Warriors, 107-98. The 25-year old had 30 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, and a steal to get the Bucks back to the winning column after a loss against San Antonio Spurs a game before.

But if you’re going to ask Mallory Edens, she doesn’t think that Giannis will leave hid dad’s team.

Reports from TMZ Sports say that Bucks owner Wes Edens’ daughter thinks that the end-game talk between Steph and Giannis is just normal. “I think they’re just friends,” said the 23-year old model.

To clarify the issue, Curry said that he’s talking about teaming up with Giannis playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) per Sports Illustrated reports but Mallory isn’t convinced that the two-time MVP is talking about video games. “I don’t think Giannis plays video games,” she said.

Despite the issue, nothing can change their minds in putting their trust in their star players. “He’s loyal,” said Edens.

The Bucks are riding on a four-game winning streak after a 128-102 victory against the Knickerbockers at home. Giannis had 37 points, nine rebounds, four assists, a block and an impressive 3-of-5 from three to keep Milwaukee as the number one team in the league with 36-6 win-loss card.
