Monty Williams Rumors

Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams was recently slammed by NBA analyst Amin Elhassan for going into the Milwaukee Bucks’ locker room after his team’s Game 6 loss in the NBA Finals (and then Suns fans slammed Elhassan for slamming Williams). A recent video from ESPN’s Malika Andrews on Twitter might clear up some of the controversy surrounding the issue. In the video, an interview with Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks star says that he invited the Suns coach into the Milwaukee locker room.
Antetokounmpo also said this during the interview: “It was an amazing moment. He came up to me and told me, “Congrats.” And he’s a great coach. He got the best out of his team. … I felt like the right thing to do was to take him in the locker room and allow him to talk to the team. Because I think he wanted to talk to the team, but he didn’t want to stop the celebration.”
