Giannis Antetokounmpo: Bucks Can Probably Win 70 Games 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 31, 2020 9:22 pm

Giannis Antetokounmpo believes the Milwaukee Bucks should have had more than one other All-Star beyond himself and Khris Middleton, citing Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez.

"Bled could average 20-25 points if we actually played a lot of minutes but we didn't. He's sacrificed also, a lot for this team and is one of our leaders," he continued. "Not just Bled, and Brook [Lopez] also. I wanted Bled to be on the team, the whole team wanted Bled to be on the team because he's definitely deserving, but this team is unselfish. Guys that are on this team, they just play to win and even though he did not make it, he's going to come out tonight and for the rest of the season give his best and help this team be successful."

The Bucks are 41-6 and Antetokounmpo believes they can win 70 games.

"We're not done," Antetokounmpo said. "We've got a long way to go. We're on pace, we can probably win 70 games, but at the end of the day, we've got to keep getting better. I think the team is getting better game by game and we're definitely motivated. We haven't done nothing. Not trying to take anything away from the games that we won, but we've got a long way to go and I've said in the past, but I'll say it right now that our goal is to play in June and be the best team we can be at that time."
