You can have the best players on your team but if you don't have chemistry, then you're just not going to win an NBA Championship. If you don't take our word for it, just ask the Los Angeles Lakers Fab Four or Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley.
That's why it's always so refreshing to see teammates getting along so well. You can tell that they enjoy each other's company and that they're willing to go to war for any other guy on their team.
That seems to be the case with PJ Tucker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Even though Tucker hasn't been with the Milwaukee Bucks for long, it seems like he's getting along just fine with the team's biggest star.
Giannis and Tucker were recorded in the practice facility trading light shots at each other, with the Greek Freak mocking PJ for his shoes and Tucker teasing him for parking his car wherever he wanted:
Giannis: "Man, you can't say nothing. You got diamonds on your shoes."
P.J. Tucker: "See, that's the difference. I got diamonds on my shoes, you park your cars wherever you want to. City of Milwaukee."
Giannis: "First time I saw a Bentley was in Phoenix. It was your car. I was like 'what is this?'"
It's safe to say that the Bucks aren't feeling the pressure of being in the NBA Finals and that they're just taking it one game at a time. They won't crumble even if they're behind in the series.
Tucker and Antetokounmpo are the heart and soul of the Bucks' defense, so it's nice to see that they don't have any sort of communication issue whatsoever. Oh, yeah, and they're hilarious. We need more content like this.
