Giannis on NBC's Olympics app: 'If I got to pay nevermind…'

By , Audacy Sports

Even NBA superstar Giannis Antetoukounmpo can't be bothered to sign up for NBC's premium streaming app to watch Olympics basketball.

Giannis took to Twitter on Tuesday night to seek an assist on where to watch Team USA take on Iran in Tokyo.

When a Bucks beat reporter replied and informed Giannis that watching live would require a subscription, the two-time MVP seemed to suggest he'd rather find something else to watch.

"If I got to pay nevermind..." said Antetokounmpo, who is set to earn a cool $39.3M next season.

Giannis' sentiment seemed to echo those of many basketball fans who have expressed frustration with NBC's streaming service since the beginning of the Games.

Some users have said it's unclear which events require a paid subscription to watch live on the app, while others complained its interface was confusing and unnavigable, the New York Post reported.

Meanwhile many primetime events such as men's basketball don't air on TV until long after the events have taken place and streamed live on the app, leaving a long gap for fans to potentially lose interest if the result is spoiled for them.

Giannis' team, Greece, didn't qualify for the Olympics, losing to the Czech Republic in the finals in FIBA qualifiers. Giannis didn't play for Greece in the qualifiers, which came during the Milwaukee Bucks' title run.
