After all, he has two MVP titles, one NBA title, and numerous other accolades to his name. The Greek Freak, as he is affectionately known, is one of the most explosive players of the modern game. As a result, fans throng to see the Milwaukee Bucks superstar in action whenever he is playing. However, he was given a recent reality check during his latest game.

When the Milwaukee Bucks took on the Orlando Magic recently, thousands of fans filled up the arena to see some of their favorite basketball players take the court.

The sign read, “I’m only here for #Queen Mariah!!” In case you are not aware, Giannis’ wife is Mariah Riddlesprigger and it seems the fan was in the arena to watch her instead of her husband.
