Giannis Antetokounmpo: There's No Reason For Drame, We're Winning 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Apr 2, 2019 3:52 pm

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a leading candidate for MVP this season and has become one of the NBA's lowest maintenance superstars.


“There’s no reason for drama,” Antetokounmpo told The Athletic. “We’re winning. Everyone is playing well. There’s no time for drama.”


Antetokounmpo cannot become a free agent until 2021 and will be eligible to sign a supermax in 2020.


“Giannis wants to win, we all want to win,” Marc Lasry said. “He wants to be able to compete for a championship. As long as we stay competitive, I believe he’ll stay here. In fact, other free agents will want to come to Milwaukee to play with Giannis.


“All Giannis wants is an opportunity to win. That what we all want.”

He has loyalty in his DNA... And his family has know Masai much longer. He'll be a Raptor.
