Pat Connaughton joined JJ Redick’s podcast and talked about the NBA return plan in Orlando, the social unrest due to the racial injustice and the Milwaukee Bucks’ team.

Among the other topics, Connaughton referred to Giannis Antetokounmpo leadership. The explosive guard shared a story from his first days in Milwaukee and the way the league’s MVP is leading by example.

In particular, the former Blazers’ player explained that Giannis is working like “a second-round rotational player”, while, talent-wise, he is one of the best in the world.
