VIDEO: Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo discusses sideline altercation with assistant coach

MILWAUKEE -- It appears that an explosive altercation between Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and assistant coach Sean Sweeney was simply a fight between "brothers" who both have a passion for winning.

That's how the Bucks' superstar put it in an interview Sunday, one day after the Bucks' loss to the Utah Jazz.

"That's what me and Sweeney do. You always fight with your brothers. Me and Sweeney are so tight. He always speaks the truth to me. I always speak the truth to him," said Antetokounmpo in the video above.

"This time was caught...on national TV, but me and Sweeney are OK. That's what we do. We fight. We argue, but at the end of the day, we both want to win."
