Two basketball guitar players come together from across the country.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at San Antonio Spurs Stephen Spillman-USA TODAY Sports

With the NBA in the midst of a 30-day hiatus at the bare minimum (and that number may be rising with four Nets players testing positive for COVID-19), players are having to find other ways to entertain themselves. Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo appears to have taken on learning the guitar, with his girlfriend Mariah Danae tweeting a video of him playing everyone’s first song, Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple.

The Greek Freak may be more impressed with his skills than Mariah, offering up his services to anyone who wants it, and Spurs guard Patty Mills is ready to join him for any gig he gets, and it appears he has Giannis’ approval.

Who wouldn’t want to see one of the league’s longest players working in harmony with one of the shortest?
