Jaylen Brown Thinking Refs Help Bucks Might Be Funniest Thing Ever
Jaylen Brown was mad online last night after the Milwaukee Bucks won last night. Brown posted a meme of Giannis Antetokounmpo and one of the refs holding hands. Brown insinuated that NBA officials helped out Giannis Antetokounmpo by not fouling out. Marcus Smart had some similar thoughts after the game. Antetokounmpo did not engage with any of that nonsense though which is par for the course. Brown thinking that the league would be helping out the mid-market Bucks versus Celtics, a premier team in the league, is hilarious. Bucks fans can tell Brown that Giannis gets officiated differently than any other superstar. He looks like a loser that knows his team cannot beat Milwaukee.

First of all, were those final fouls actually fouls? No. Some think that Giannis hit Daniel Theis in the nuts, and that did not actually happen. He hit Theis in the chest and it was unintentional. Antetokounmpo moved on defense and ran into Theis. That isn’t his fault. The charge call that got overturned. Smart started to fall and did not stick into the ground. Also when Smart flops all the time, it is hard to take him seriously from the officials. Both were technicalities and if Giannis actually fouled a Celtics player, I’d agreed with the notion. But it’s not the case.
PS: Isn’t this picture kind of homophobic from Brown? Odd look from a player that is supposed to be one of the leaders off the court.
