Giannis Antetokounmpo was benched by Jason Kidd last night for not playing hard.  Every player should listen to his quote when he was asked about it after the game.  Fast forward to 2:36 on the video.

“I love it.  You don’t do the right thing, sit your butt on the bench.  Coach did a great job pulling guys out and teaching them a lesson.  I was one of them.  He pulled me out and told me you’ve got to play harder.  I came back in and I played harder.  I love that.  For coach to do that means he really wants to win and really cares about the team.  We have to appreciate that as players.”

The Bucks came back from 20 points down to win the game.
