Giannis Antetokounmpo: I Don't Like Being Hollywood 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Apr 9, 2019 12:52 pm

Giannis Antetokounmpo has an elaborate and eccentric set of workouts. Antetokounmpo aims to eliminate distractions and unnecessary decisions such as what to wear.


"I just want to win," Antetokounmpo said. "All that other stuff takes away from the game, and you just spend extra energy on looking good for five seconds. I don't care about that. I just want to look good on the court. Get the win and go back home and lay on my couch and just watch game film. That's it."


Antetokounmpo recently declined a role in "Space Jam 2" with LeBron James. Antetokounmpo would have had to give up two weeks of private workouts while making the movie.


"I don't like being Hollywood," Antetokounmpo said. "I don't like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me."

This is why Giannis is going to be the best player in the NBA for a long time. Dude only wants to play basketball and win. He's got that Kobe/Jordan work ethic and he's already a superstar at 24.

Yes that's what I'm talking about. Giannis is a real one and not all about that fake fame ****. He's a player who is dedicated to his craft. He doesn't seek attention he just let's his play speak for itself. A true role model who isn't into glorifying himself. I love it I wish more players had his attitude. Good move on saying no to space jam 2.
Trust the Process it is our shot to be a solid franchise again, we are the originals we are the Philadelphia 76ers!
