Mario Hezonja News

Giannis Antetokounmpo is sorry for his words, but not his message. For Giannis Antetokounmpo, one of those principles is apparently dealing physical punishment to an opponent’s groin if they show him up like New York Knicks forward Mario Hezonja did on Saturday. During the Milwaukee Bucks’ game against the Knicks, Hezonja intercepted a pass at the top of the key and immediately raced down the court for a breakaway attempt.

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo apologized for his comments after Milwaukee's loss to the Knicks on Sunday, when the two-time All-Star said he was "going to punch" Knicks forward Mario Hezonja. Antetokounmpo didn't take too kindly to the taunt, claiming he would punch Hezonja in the groin if he suffered the same indignity again. Antetokounmpo apologized for his comments on Monday.

For a team that hasn't looked all that tough this season, the New York Knicks could present a much stiffer chin when the Washington Wizards come to town on Monday night than they did before Saturday's overtime thriller over Eastern Conference heavyweight Milwaukee. There was Mario Hezonja, waltzing all over Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo. There was rookie Kevin Knox, dropping a career-high 26 points.

Mario Hezonja might want to steer clear of Giannis Antetokounmpo when the Bucks return to Madison Square Garden on Christmas Day.
