Giannis Antetokounmpo made a remark on Sunday that may leave Milwaukee Bucks fans a little nervous about the future.
Antetokounmpo appeared on FOX 32 Chicago’s “The Sports Zone” and appeared to suggest he would be open to playing for the Chicago Bulls in the future. The two-time MVP cited the Bulls’ NBA heritage as one of the reasons Chicago remained an attractive destination for him.
“I think anyone who asked this question who plays basketball, if they said no they would be a liar. This is a team that has won several championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest. great player to ever play this game,” he said.

Antetokounmpo has been one of the NBA’s most dominant players in recent seasons. He signed a five-year, $228 million contract extension before the start of the 2021-22 season, so if he were to join Chicago down the line, it wouldn’t be until he was in his 30s.
Milwaukee selected Antetokounmpo with the No. 15 pick in the 2013 NBA draft. He was an All-Star for the past six seasons and averaged 21.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.2 steals per game during his career.
The story of Antetokounmpo and his brothers, Thanasis and Kostas, emigrating from Nigeria to Greece en route to realizing their NBA dream, was the subject of the movie “Rise”.
