The Bucks may have lost in Cleveland to the Cavaliers, but that did not stop the appetite of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Greek NBA champion appeared at the press conference after the match with a bucket of chicken wings.

He opened the lid, started eating and at the same time listened to questions and answered them!

As the Bucks admitted, they may have played crap, but the wings must have been very tasty!

Last summer a well-known chain of chicken restaurants in the USA had offered free food for life to Giannis after he had advertised it by placing an order which everyone saw on Instagram Live!
