Warriors’ Curry Requests to be PUB-G Gaming Partner with Giannis
The Golden State Warriors aren’t getting Giannis Antetokounmpo – at least not for the time being.
Moreover, Stephen Curry wasn’t recruiting him following a Wednesday night loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Well, he kind of was recruiting him, but it’s not what you think – depending on what story you believe. The camera caught the two superstars talking at center court and it appeared as though the Warriors superstar was making some interesting request.
“Let’s do it! Cmon man”

“I reached out to Steph via text and (he said) all he was doing was giving Giannis his gamer tag for an online game called PlayerUnknown Battleground,” said Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports. “He said he told Giannis, ‘Come see me on this game. We can team up and do some damage. Let’s do it. Come on.’”
Antetokounmpo is eligible to sign the super-max this upcoming Summer. If opts to decline the Bucks offer, he will enter free agency the following offseason.
While both superstars share the same agency, it may just be that Curry is bored as he recovers from his hand injury.
