A franchise drops a huge foot call to Giannis, fans in fusion!
Champion in 2021 with Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo has proven to everyone that he can lead a squad to the end. Unsurprisingly, the competition is therefore scrambling to tear it away from its own… and one franchise has decided to adopt an anything but subtle strategy in this regard.
In nine seasons with the Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo won just about everything he could in terms of rewards. On an individual level, he only misses the Sixth Man of the Year and as much to say that he is not ready to come out of the bench, given his level of play. And collectively, he already has the ring at the finger since he took his franchise to the title in 2020-21, showing himself to be imperial against the Suns in the Finals. So, what could he still achieve on the spot?
While he’s feeling great in Wisconsin, the Greek Freak isn’t ruling out setting sail one day, especially towards chicago because he is a Bulls fan. Of course, the latter have heard his words and therefore do what is necessary to convince him to join them. This is also whythey signed one of his brothers recently, Kostas Antetokounmpo leaving ASVEL for Illinois. He was also presented with his new teammates, on the sidelines of Media Day:
Kostas Antetokounmpo to the Bulls… to attract Giannis?

When you see this message, hard not to believe that the Bulls are sending an invitation to the double MVP at the same time. Now that Kostas is back in the US (although he should mostly be playing in the G League, at least initially), why not join him, especially since Giannis has said he plans to play for Chi-Town in the future? Unsurprisingly, local supporters share the same opinion, convinced that he can lead the franchise to the first coronation since the Michael Jordan era:
Let’s do it, come on @Giannis_An34 Chicago will be the perfect fit for you to pick up some rings and things. The rest of the league will envy you.

His brother has to go to Chicago
Giannis Antetokounmpo holds the family in high esteem, and loves playing with his brothers in the national team as at the Bucks with Thanasis. If the Bulls also manage to sign the third member of the siblings when he becomes a free agent, the Greek Freak could well be tempted.
