Rick Pitino shared his thoughts on the confrontation between James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

“Anytime I see something negative for a Greek player, I have to step up and say something positive. I am not anti-Harden, I am not against anyone. I am pro-Giannis. And I hope that we will make it to the Olympic Games and coach him,” Pitino told reporters on Saturday.

On Friday, Pitino took to Twitter and expressed his support for the “Greek Freak”.
