Giannis Antetokounmpo: “I don’t feel any pain, I feel very good. I’ve taken a lot of beatings lately, but I always pick myself up. In the end, it’s basketball. I’ve said it several times before, I like the physical game, I like putting my body on the line, it boosts me, it wakes me up, I don’t know. Few people like to take hits.
Obviously, at the end of the day, you want to have a game that gets you as few hits as possible in a match, but when I do there’s a part of me that likes that. I feel like I’m in the game, I’m focused, aggressive, I attack the basket, I create for my teammates. It’s part of my game and it’s part of basketball, sometimes you’re going to take hits. But in the end I don’t have pain, I get up. »
