Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting creative with his time during the NBA's postponement.

Just a few days ago, the Bucks forward picked up a guitar and played a hilariously bad rendition of a popular rock song. He then posted an image of himself and his girlfriend engaging in a chess match.

Giannis' latest way of distracting himself has come through the means of Instagram live. The NBA star engaged in a question and answer segment with fans late Wednesday night - but the live session brought out a viral confession.

One fan asked Giannis' girlfriend what her favorite NBA team was - and her answer wasn't the Bucks. Instead, she revealed she grew up as a die-hard Lakers fan. It's safe to say Giannis wasn't pleased with her confession, as seen in the video below:

Giannis' girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, did go on to clarify she was only a Lakers fan when she was younger. Now, she's clearly a fan of the Bucks, for obvious reasons.

The reaction certainly doesn't bode well for Lakers fans hoping No. 34 eventually signs with Los Angeles, though. But as we've seen from NBA free agency over the past few years, anything can happen.

While Giannis has made good use of his time during the NBA hiatus, he's certainly hoping the season will resume again at some point this year.
