Giannis Antetokounmpo has always reiterated his commitment to the Milwaukee Bucks. After winning the 2021 NBA Championships, the Greek Freak continues to pledge his allegiance to the team, hoping to bring more wins to Milwaukee.
Antetokounmpo is considered one of the game’s greatest players and has evidently been a pillar for the Bucks for many years. Over the years, he has shown that his loyalty to the franchise has not swayed, however, when posed with the question of whether or not he would ever consider playing for the Chicago Bulls, Antetokounmpo did not discount the opportunity should it ever come up. While he doubled down on his current commitment to the Bucks, he did allude to the fact that playing for the Bulls would be legendary. He responds,
“I think anybody who is asked that question that plays basketball, if he said no, he would be a liar.
It’s a team that won multiple championships. It’s the team that one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game played for. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. Maybe I play for Chicago, but right now I am committed to Milwaukee.”
It appears that with these comments, Antetotkounmpo is not closing the door on the opportunity to play for the Bulls when the time is right. He is currently in a multi-million dollar contract that has secured him to play with the Bucks up until the end of the 2025-26 season. It is uncertain what he plans to do after the contract finishes.
