Former Alabama standout Donta Hall gets in skirmish with reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo during NBA bubble game
With a number of players injured or opting out of the NBA bubble restart, the Brooklyn Nets needed pro-caliber players to fill out their roster for Orlando.
One player to get the call was former Alabama big man Donta Hall. And, on Tuesday, he certainly made a name for himself against the Milwaukee Bucks — the best team in the Eastern Conference.
As you can see below, Hall gets into a brief skirmish with reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo under the basket:

It seems the two players got tangled while positioning themselves for a rebound, but Antetokounmpo took issue with the extra shove Hall gives him. Cooler heads eventually prevailed, though.
Hall contributed off the bench in the Nets’ surprising 119-116 victory over the Bucks, recording 4 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks and a steal.
