Channing Frye rips Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo after Jrue Holiday trade

1 Min Read

The Milwaukee Bucks are closing in on a trade that will net them New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday in return for Eric Bledsoe, George Hill and draft compensation.

Although the deal looks like an upgrade for the Bucks, former Cleveland Cavaliers big man Channing Frye threw shade at them and their superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo shortly after the news broke.

It’s an all-or-nothing situation for the Bucks, as Antetokounmpo hasn’t yet signed the supermax deal that’s available to him. If he does not re-sign, he will become a free agent at the conclusion of the upcoming NBA season.

Despite his individual accolades and the Bucks finishing with the league’s best record the past two seasons, Antetokounmpo hasn’t even come close to winning an NBA championship.

Frye has a good point. Even with Holiday and Bogdan Bogdanovic, the Bucks’ success come playoff time will still largely hinge on the Greek Freak’s ability to score when the game slows down.

It is, after all, the one glaring weakness in his otherwise otherworldly game.
