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.

While most of California welcomed more places to eat, shop and play this holiday weekend, Los Angeles did not join the party. The nation's most populous county is not planning to reopen more widely until the next summer holiday, July 4th, because it has a disproportionately large share of the state's coronavirus cases and can't meet even new, relaxed state standards for allowing additional businesses and recreational activities. In recent days, death and hospitalization trends have improved, but on Friday the White House coronavirus response coordinator named LA as a region where spread of the virus is a concern.

A federal judge on Friday ordered Los Angeles city and county to move thousands of homeless people living near freeways after an agreement on a plan fell through. U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter issued a preliminary injunction requiring the relocation, by Sept. 1, of an estimated 6,000 to 7,000 people camping near freeway ramps and overpasses, saying they face a health risk emergency. Carter ordered a status report on the relocation plan to be ready by June 12, with updates to follow, and warned that he would move up the deadline if he doesn't see "satisfactory progress."

None of these are legit, even though they were shared widely on social media. CLAIM: Michigan sent absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of primaries and the general election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue secretary of state.
