Jimmy Butler absolutely torched the Milwaukee Bucks for 40 points in game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals and it doesn’t seem like defensive player of the year Giannis Antetokounmpo has any interest in guarding the Heat forward late in games going forward.

After Butler scored his career playoff-high in points during the Heat’s game 1 win, Giannis was asked why he didn’t ask coach Mike Budenholzer to have him switch on Butler late in the fourth quarter. The Bucks star immediately got defensive about being asked that particular question and asked the reporter why he would ask that.

Giannis’ was then blasted by former NBA players and fans for his response.
