This Detroit fan’s reaction to the Greek Freak’s block is everything

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the likely NBA MVP, and he showed yet another reason why on Monday night at Little Caesars Arena as his Milwaukee Bucks completed the four-game opening round sweep of the Detroit Pistons out of the 2019 Playoffs.

Pistons guard Ish Smith was attacking the basket for what he thought would be an easy layup and two points – but the Greek Freak would have none of it. One monstrous block later, and the entire building was buzzing.

Of course, the internet was buzzing soon afterwards as this fan’s reaction went viral. Check it out:


Tom Gores doesn’t regret short playoff appearance

The Detroit Pistons qualified for the 2019 NBA Playoffs by defeating the New York Knicks in the final game of the regular season, earning the very last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Of course, that meant they’d have to run into a buzzsaw called the Milwaukee Bucks, who won 60 of 82 games, good for best in the league. And while the Pistons didn’t win a single game against Milwaukee in the playoffs (or in the regular season), they’re not regretting their short experience in the postseason.

Team owner Tom Gores, who was in attendance, stayed positive and said that he’d rather have had a short postseason experience than none at all.

“We’re happy to get in and I’m very happy to see this stadium rocking a little bit and Detroit get going,” Gores explained court side following Game 4.

“I just don’t believe in the idea of … whatever you want to call it, tanking, losing,” Gores said. “We need a winning culture here. You can’t get on the court and think about losing. I just don’t believe in it. I think this year, before the All-Star break, nobody thought we could get into the playoffs, so we did do something special.
