Bulls’ Patrick Williams Doesn’t Fear Giannis Antetokounmpo

“He’s good, but he’s not God.” – Patrick Williams on Giannis

Patrick Williams isn’t afraid to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo. Ahead of Game 2 between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks, Williams said, “He puts his pants on the same way I do. He’s good, but he’s not God.”

The confidence Williams is speaking with should be respected. He understands who Giannis is and acknowledges his talent level. However, such wording could also come off as a bit cocky from a guy many Bulls fans are waiting on to turn a corner. In three regular-season games against the “Greek Freak”, Williams is averaging 10.7 PPG and 5.3 RPG while shooting 50% from the field.

Now, it may not be a good thing for Patrick Williams to give any extra motivation to Giannis. In his three career games against Williams, Giannis is averaging 24 PPG, 12.7 RPG, and 6.7 APG. He is shooting 56% from the field in those contests.

Williams also needs to realize that the former MVP gets plenty of favorable foul calls. He should have learned that the hard way in Game 1. Just check out the play below.

I’m not doubting that Williams can make life a bit difficult for Giannis, but there is simply no stopping him outright. You just have to hope to contain him.

Once again, you have to respect the confidence of Williams. These comments should make for an even more interesting matchup as the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks continue their first-round playoff series tonight.
