Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t about to stop having fun even with his Milwaukee Bucks facing a 2-0 series deficit to the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals.

Antetokounmpo showed his fun-loving side by channeling his inner Marshawn Lynch while addressing reporters on Saturday.

“I’m just here not to get fined,” Antetokounmpo said with a smile. After a brief pause, he added “I’m joking, I’m joking.”

Antetokounmpo quickly got serious and addressed playing Sunday’s Game 3 in Milwaukee. The two-time reigning NBA MVP has put concerns about his hyperextended left knee in the rearview mirror after totaling 62 points in the first games, including 42 in the Bucks’ 118-108 loss in Game 2 on Thursday.

Lynch famously said his quote — repeatedly, in fact — at Super Bowl XLIX Media Day six years ago.
