Giannis Antetokounmpo on playing with brothers: 'Milwaukee, L.A., wherever - that'd be awesome'




 

Giannis Antetokounmpo - on the elite Bucks and nearing his super-max decision - has the NBA by the tail.

Teams are trying to impress the family-oriented superstar. Milwaukee signed his brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo. The Lakers added another brother, Kostas Antetokounmpo. (The Knicks drafted Thanasis, but Thanasis' tenure in New York reportedly left a sour taste in Giannis' mouth.)

Now, Giannis - who once said he could never see himself playing for Los Angeles - is singing a slightly different tune

USA Today:


Antetokounmpo:

Maybe Antetokounmpo is just paying lip service to the Lakers, because they added Kostas. But at this point, that's progress for Los Angeles.

Considering Giannis' agent just said "everything is open," it seems Giannis could be planting the seeds for leaving Milwaukee. He could definitely stay. But by at least mentioning other possibilities, he'd soften the blow if he chooses to depart.

Giannis' views on loyalty have always been more complex than people realized. Tastes change. It sounds as if Giannis isn't quite as averse to Los Angeles as he once was.

Of course, there's a huge difference between that and actually joining the Lakers. Giannis hasn't suddenly transformed into a totally different person.

But this quote will keep the candle of hope burning in Los Angeles.
