PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo argued with an arena worker and flung a ladder away from a basket, sending it toppling over as he tried to shoot practice free throws after the Bucks’ 110-102 loss to Philadelphia on Friday night.

After going 4 for 15 from the line, Antetokounmpo returned to the floor several minutes after the game ended to shoot free throws.

Antetokounmpo proceeded to miss his first five foul shots in the postgame practice.

One of the workers set up a 12-foot ladder next to the basket where Antetokounmpo was shooting.

Antetokounmpo moved it out of the way and the employee moved it back.

Antetokounmpo had a quick, heated verbal exchange, then moved the ladder away again, sending it crashing down.
