The actor, former football player and longtime wrestler “The Rock” has responded to the weightlifting challenge from Milwaukee’s own “Greek Freak.”
Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo sent word out with a challenge to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, saying he can lift more than the well-built star of film, football and the squared circle.
Me and @planetpat5 making our own Iron Paradise in Milwaukee – 570lbs/260kgs… I think we topped your 460lbs personal best but we’ll give you a chance to match it here in Milwaukee @therock #StayFreaky #EyeBrowOnFleek #WhatDoYouThinkRock #ItsDoesntMatterWhatYouThink

“The Rock” responded with complimentary comments.
Haha just seeing this. My boys here are stroooong!! Good to see you’re bringing my Iron Paradise to the @NBA. It’s why you’re #1 in the East. @Giannis_An34 might be bionic.

Giannis has heavy lifting to do to keep the Bucks in the lofty perch they’re located in right now: The team with the NBA’s best record (26-10).
