May 26 (UPI) -- Milwaukee star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo stormed out of his news conference after the Bucks' Game 6 loss to the Toronto Raptors and elimination in the NBA Playoffs on Saturday night.
Antetokounmpo, 24, was asked by ESPN reporter Malika Andrews if he believed the experience of blowing a 2-0 series lead would help the Bucks grow in the future. Teammate Khris Middleton directed the question to Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo stood up and left without a word.
ESPN had published a story immediately after Game 6 ended speculating about Antetokounmpo's future in Milwaukee. The reporter who wrote the story is the one who asked the question that Antetokounmpo walked out on.
The story speculated about his future in Milwaukee and said next year would play a significant role in his decision to sign a long-term contract to stay with the Bucks.
Antetokounmpo did not comment on the story in his news conference.
Antetokounmpo had 21 points and 11 rebounds in Saturday's 100-94 loss. The three-time All-Star is an NBA MVP finalist.
Antetokounmpo was also named to the All-NBA first team last week. He and Rockets guard James Harden were the only unanimous selections.
The Toronto Raptors will play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Game 1 will be played at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Thursday. The game will air on ABC.
