Now that Giannis Antetokounmpo has his new record contract in his pocket, its next objectives are very clear for the next five years.
“I want children and a championship. That’s all I want, ”the Milwaukee Bucks player said Wednesday in an interview reported by ESPN. After that, my life will be complete. ”
Antetokounmpo signed a five-year, $ 228 million contract extension on Tuesday with the Bucks. This is the biggest contract ever awarded in NBA history.
Last season, the 26-year-old became the second youngest player in tour history to win the MVP title two years in a row after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James. He also became the third to earn MVP and Best Defensive Player in the same year after Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan.
The nicknamed “The Greek Freak” averaged 29.5 points per game last year and was named for a fourth consecutive season among the NBA all-stars.
Despite individual honors, Antetokounmpo was unable to lead the Bucks to the coveted championship. Indeed, the formation of Milwaukee was eliminated in the semifinals of association by the Heat of Miami. But for Antetokounmpo, this is only a postponement.
“I believe we can be better. We have already improved, he noted. We have a good team, a good culture. I’m working towards this goal (the championship) and the team leadership as well so I’m happy. We’re all going in the same direction. “
What is certain is that Antetokounmpo does not want to be anywhere else. It is in Milwaukee that he wants to bring the championship back in the near future.
“This is where I want to be. This is my home, my city. I want to represent Milwaukee and I want to do so for the next five years. ”
