Giannis’ Girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, Has Message For ESPN Analyst

In the aftermath of the Bucks’ NBA Finals win, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s girlfriend Mariah Riddlesprigger had a message for ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins.

Perkins made headlines earlier in the playoffs when he declared that Khris Middleton, not Giannis, was the “Batman” for the Bucks. The former NBA champion center called Giannis the team’s “Robin.”

Well, if there was any doubt about who Milwaukee’s leading man was, Giannis erased it during these NBA Finals. Middleton was himself terrific –averaging 24.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game–but the “Greek Freak” stole the show, averaging 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists while closing out the series with a 50-point masterpiece.

Around 2 a.m. ET this morning, Riddlesprigger subtweeted Perkins, shouting out Giannis’ performance while mocking the ESPN personality’s “Carry on” catchphrase.

“NBA CHAMPION and a 50 piece! CARRY ON,” she wrote.

Now, in fairness to Perk, he did change his tune a bit last night, giving Giannis his flowers for what he deemed “the greatest performance in a close out Finals game in NBA history.”

“Humility, Character Sacrifice are 3 words to describe Giannis! The way he handled these Finals on and off the court I can’t help but become a fan! Real Talk,” Perkins also tweeted.

In terms of proving his doubters wrong, Giannis’ playoff run is up there for one of the most impressive in recent league history.
