NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has trolled Nick Kyrgios after meeting up with fellow Greek athlete Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Tsitsipas recently bowed out of the French Open in the semi-final after an epic five-set tussle with Novak Djokovic.

There are no more Grand Slams for the year.

The NBA schedule has also come to an end for 2020 after a break in due to the coronavirus pandemic, which allowed the tennis star and Antetokounmpo to meet up for some fun.

Pole vault star Emmanuel Karalis also joined for some laugh, which prompted Antetokounmpo to label them ‘The Three Musketeers’.

But during the night, Tsitsipas found out the MVP’s favourite tennis player and decided to troll fellow joker and NBA fan Kyrgios in a video.

“Nick, you were my favourite tennis athlete ... but now it's Nadal because I just love him," Antetokounmpo said.

Tsitsipas, who has shared a few jokes with Kyrgios through social media in lockdown, couldn’t help but share a wry smile.

Kyrgios picked up on the video and reposted on his Instagram.

But the Milwaukee Bucks star sent some praise the Aussie’s way.

"I’m just playing around. I love your game brother," Antetokounmpo commented on Kyrgios’ post.

Kyrgios is a life-long NBA fan and is often seen training in the Boston Celtics jersey.

In the lead up to the Brisbane tournament in 2020, Kyrgios trained in the No.34 Milwuakee Bucks jersey which is Antetokounmpo’s number.
