Giannis Antetokounmpo ready to leave the Bucks ?!

Iconic face of Milwaukee, could Giannis Antetokounmpo set sail? This is what a terrifying rumor suggests recently! It even comes from the mouth of Greek Freak himself… but there is also a big nuance.

In just eight years, Giannis Antetokounmpo has forged an immortal status in Bucks history. The Greek interior has already won everything with the franchise that drafted him in 2013: Double MVP, Best Progress, Defender of the Year. And then, there is this title of champion in climax, to obtain last year with the trophy of MVP of the Finals as a bonus. It’s hard to do better within a single team.

In a sense, however, this also means that the Greek Freak has scooped everything he can with the Deers. He must therefore find new challenges … and these could be found outside Wisconsin, as he explained to Zach Barron of GQ. The journalist related the words of n ° 34, in particular that he does not want to rest on his laurels and always go further:

Giannis: « My next challenge might not be in Milwaukee »

“One of the challenges was to bring a title here and we did it,” he told me. “It was very difficult, but we did it. Very, very hard. I love challenges. What’s the next challenge? The next challenge might not be here. It’s not that he doesn’t like Milwaukee, he said. But he was always wary of things becoming too easy. “Me and my family have chosen to stay in this city that we all love and that has taken care of us – for now,” said Giannis. “In two years, that could change. I am totally honest with you. « 

There, absolutely all fans of the franchise must be sweaty. Could the best player in the history of the franchise (with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) leave his family soon? According to Alex Saratsis, there is no reason to panic at the moment. Indeed, it is not in the plans of The Alphabet to go away any time soon. He’s just thinking about what other goals he wants to accomplish in his career:

I don’t think it’s, « I’m thinking about leaving the Bucks. » But I think he’s genuinely like, “Ok, I’ve made it to the top. The next challenge is, let’s say it again. But what if you repeat? What’s the next challenge? What’s the next hurdle? When you think about it from a basketball standpoint, at 26, this kid has done it all. So sometimes you’re going to have to fabricate what those challenges are.

Like a LeBron James, when he left Cleveland in 2010, Giannis has so far only known a small market in Milwaukee, and could be tempted by a large-displacement experience at the end. of his contract in 2026. He will then be 31 years old, and therefore still have a few good years ahead of him. Playing in cities like Los Angeles or New York could be very appealing to him, and that would be understandable.

Let everyone calm down in Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo won’t be leaving anytime soon. However, it shouldn’t be assumed either that he will make his entire career with the Deers… After all, a lot can happen in a career.
