Connaughton, who is a small forward for the team, posted a video of him and “The Greek Freak” working out in the gym, and suggested that their collective work pumping iron was better than The Rock’s personal best.
Me and @Giannis_An34 making our own Iron Paradise in Milwaukee – 570lbs/260kgs… I think we topped your 460lbs personal best but we’ll give you a chance to match it here in Milwaukee @TheRock #StayFreaky #EyeBrowOnFleek #WhatDoYouThinkRock #ItsDoesntMatterWhatYouThink 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/LqB4qP0kpn

Connaughton then invited The Rock to match — and, possibly beat — their personal best in Milwaukee.
While Pat Connaughton is enjoying his time in the gym with his teammates, The Greek Freak can breathe a little easier. As of yesterday, NBA officials ruled that he won’t be facing any fines for his row with NY Knicks star Ennis Kanter. Though Antetokounmpo avoided the fines, he can’t avoid Kanter’s shade, as Yahoo! Sports recently reported that the Knicks center called the young player “childish” as a result of their scuffle.
The feud, apparently, originated back in early December, when Antetokounmpo threated to punch Kanter’s teammate, Mario Hezonja, in the last place that a man wants to be punched.
All that fighting still resulted in a Knicks loss, however.
Pat Connaughton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the Milwaukee Bucks are next set to take the court against the Detroit Pistons on January 1 at 8:30 p.m. EST.
