Giannis clearly remembers what happen with LeBron James and many others when they decided to leave a team that drafted them. Fans turn on them and began to burn their jersey.
Antetokounmpo discussed opting to sign the supermax extension with the Milwaukee Bucks via video conference Wednesday. “It was easy to make my decision.”
“Have kids and have a championship,” he said replying to a question regarding his vision for the duration of his new contract, “It’s tough. Nowhere guarantees a championship. It might take me ten years to win a championship.”
“I hope my grandkids build a frickin statue for me,” he added moving even further into the future, “I hope they do that shit.”
He also said he did not want to see his jersey burned if had decided to depart from the Bucks. “It’s always nice to see kids wear my jersey and are going to be able to watch me play,” he threw in.
