Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo Says He Could Never Play For Los Angeles

Published

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo shot down any chance of playing for either the Los Angeles Clippers or the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

“I could never see myself being out there,” Antetokounmpo said, via Matt Velazquez Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “It’s great for two, three days but it’s a little bit — things are going a little bit crazy.

“Of course, because of the All-Star Game, there was a lot of people there. … In Milwaukee — I love Milwaukee — it’s low-key. I can walk down the road, down the streets without anybody bugging me — nobody interrupts my conversation or anything. I love how quiet and calm Milwaukee is.”

Players such as the Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid used the All-Star weekend to try and recruit Antetokounmpo, but he seems committed to staying with the Bucks for the long haul.

“He told me I should trust the process and come play for Philly,” Antetokounmpo said. “That was my reaction — I just laughed.”

It’s good to see players of Antetokounmpo’s stature not want to flee smaller market teams such as the Bucks for the bright lights of a big market such as Los Angeles or a historic franchise such as the Lakers.
