The Rock gives a lively response to NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s challenge

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks definitely smells what The Rock is cooking … but The Rock has caught some whiffs of “The Greek Freak” too!

Antetokounmpo referenced The Great One in a recent press conference, saying that he would love to get a workout in with The Rock and then, jokingly, said that he’d bring it to him if the two ever locked up. Giannis quickly backtracked on the lighthearted claim, but the damage was done and the news traveled quickly … straight to The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment’s doorstep.

The Rock replied on Saturday afternoon, showing love for Giannis and his Milwaukee Bucks (who are currently in first place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference), but also let the MVP candidate know that he would not be taking it easy on him if the two ever did tussle. The People’s Champ made it clear he was also just joking though, suggesting that he’d be all about taking Antetokounmpo up on that workout offer.
