Get that man a table: Giannis waits after making game-winning ti

  • Marcus Smart injury update Celtics guard could return for potential Game 6

A Bucks fan posted a photo of the Greek Freak at the BelAir Cantina on twitter shortly after last night's win, saying that he waited for a table for 10 minutes but ultimately left when no one helped him.

The NBA star, affectionately known as the "Greek Freak", scored 27 points, including the winning basket on a tip-in, against the Boston Celtics for a 104-102 win, ESPN reported. Before then, the Celtics look to use their home court advantage on Tuesday to swing the series back in their favor when the two teams meeting beginning at 6 p.m. on NBATV.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has emerged as a bonafide superstar and the face of a small-market franchise that hopes to build around him for many years to come.

What's a 6-foot-11-inch NBA All-Star have to do to get a burrito in Milwaukee? The Milwaukee Bucks selected Antetokounmpo with the 15th overall pick in the first round of the 2013 National Basketball Association draft. The low-key duo subsequently headed to a nearby pizza parlor, which memorialized the visit on Instagram. Only, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a manager informed him that they were too busy to find him a seat right away. The home crowd exploded, Giannis almost pogo-sticked out of the building while executing that sprint-and-jump-side-body-bump celebration with his teammates, and the outmatched Bucks headed back to Boston with their best-of-seven series improbably knotted at 2-2. "The Milwaukee Bucks' big win, thanks to his tip in and the team's great play, combined with today's spring weather had people turn out in droves to celebrate and we had quite a wait". And they'll hold a table just for Giannis.

The chain has apologized to Antetokounmpo and pledged to offer free tacos to Bucks fans, should Milwaukee win the series against the Boston Celtics.

Giannis Antetokounmpo enjoyed his post-game repast at DiModa Pizza, about a half mile down the road.

Hours later, Antetokounmpo and his girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, couldn't get a damn table at a Mexican restaurant.
