Mario Hezonja has embraced the New York attitude.
The first-year Knick, who has struggled to find a role this season, had his moment in the first quarter on Saturday against the Bucks. He got a steal on a tip back, raced out in transition, then got up and threw down the dunk just before Giannis Antetokounmpo could pull off a chase-down block.
Then Hezonja stared down and stepped over the Greek Freak.
The Garden fans loved it.
But you might not want to make Giannis angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
