While he is the delight of the Bucks today, Giannis Antetokounmpo could leave Wisconsin in the more or less near future. The interested party has never hidden his desire to explore new horizons one day, without specify a franchise in the line of sight. This NBA analyst thinks he knows where he wants to play very soon…
Already champion with his Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo has the firm intention of repeating the experience this season or for those to come in Milwaukee. The ambition has not changed, especially since this team is still among the favorites with the contribution of Khris Middleton (on the return) and Jrue Holiday.

He plays for his family, something bigger than himself. He really understands New York and Madison Square Garden. When you think of Giannis, he’s not afraid to say “I want this. »
« He wouldn’t be bothered by the media if he left. Looks like he’s perfect for there. »
Giannis at the Knicks? We imagine that this is a scenario that will not displease many supporters. New York fans want to find hope, and Antetokounmpo would be the perfect player for that. However, a departure is not on the agenda in Milwaukee, not for a few years at least. But never say never in this league.
Jay Williams is convinced that Giannis Antetokounmpo would be perfect for the Knicks and their Madison Square Garden. We must admit that the project is pleasant, although a departure is impossible at the moment. But if Milwaukee fails in the playoffs in the next few years, everything is playable. The competition will be tough in such a scenario…
