Giannis Antetokounmpo I just extended with the Bucks that some insiders are already starting to talk about the move a few years from now. You say to yourself for example that he would like to join his new best friend in the league, who is also a potential MVP!
After long months of waiting and speculation of all kinds, Giannis Antetokounmpo signed the largest contract in history with the Bucks, linking his future to that of the franchise for the next 5 years. And the leaders did everything they could to convince the Greek monster to stay in Wisconsin.
They’ve already taken Jrue Holiday up a notch in the playoffs. Eric Bledsoe was a more than competent point guard on both sides of the field during the regular season, but in the postseason he didn’t necessarily make it. It is up to the former Pelicans player to prove that he can be a real option behind the Greek Freak and Khris Middleton when necessary.
But, curiously, despite the new extension of the reigning double MVP, some specialists are already talking about what he will do next. For the inside information of Yahoo! sports Chris Haynes, Giannis might as well be joining his new best friend … unless the latter gets there first. In any case, the duo would go far.
If the Bucks hadn’t made the necessary adjustments to make Giannis happy, I think one team would have been in a good position to welcome him, and that team is Portland. Sources have confirmed to me that he has become very close to Damian Lillard in recent months, and they have already talked about training together.
But the same sources also told me that they talked together about what their team would be like if they both played when their contracts ended. Dame tried to seduce Giannis by telling him that he would be perfect in Portland and vice versa.
Giannis et Damian Lillard on the same team, it would look good! Even if it will be necessary to wait at least 5 years to see such a duo, there is something to dream about. On the other hand, not to mention the partnership in a few years, if the Greek Freak follows his new best friend’s shooting advice, he risks doing damage!
We are far from the 90s in the NBA. Today the superstars are getting closer and closer and still dream of evolving together.
