Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo tells Drake 'Raptors Superfan' is most annoying to play in front of

Nav Bhatia one of the most well know superfans in the NBA knows how to get under the opposing team's skin.

Bhatia has been a Toronto Raptors' superfan since the first year of the franchise' existents in 1995 and has been a staple at Raptor home games right next to the visiting team's bench.

On Friday, during a Q-and-A on his Instagram feed, Giannis Antetokounmpo was asked by another famous Raptors supporter Drake who was the most annoying fan to play in front of.

The Milwaukee Bucks franchise player replied it was "Superfan" Nav Bhatia adding "he always talks crap".

Bhatia who saw the post on social media laughed it off and replied: "Hahaha (Antetokounmpo) love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch Drake then the superfan :) dinner on me next time."

The Raptors have created quite the homecourt advantage over the last three seasons going 89-25 at the time of the season stoppage. Bhatia who claims to have never missed a game or been late to one has been there for all of them.

The NBA recently created a new "Superfan Gallery" to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, Bhatia will be one of the first inductees to the new wing.
