Milwaukee Bucks Power Forward: Giannis Antetokounmpo

Again and again, Giannis Antetokounmpo has made it clear that he wants to stay in Milwaukee as long as the Bucks remain committed to winning. It seems incredibly far-fetched that the team will look to enter a rebuild at any point when Antetokounmpo is around. The front office will continue to piece together rosters that can compete for a title year in and year out to keep him happy.

In five years, Ginnis Antetokounmpo will be 33 years old. Even if his athleticism will have worn down a bit by that point, the Greek Freak could still undeniably be one of the best in the business and have plenty of gas left in the tank. Antetokounmpo’s game will continue to revolve around his dominance down low as well as his versatile play defensively.

Hopefully Giannis Antetokounmpo follows the same blueprint as Lakers star LeBron James and ages quite gracefully. As long as he takes care of himself and avoids any major injuries, there will be no slowing down the Greek Freak, who – fingers crossed – will finish his career in Milwaukee as he aims to add a few more banners to Fiserv Forum.

For now, the pressure is on the front office to make sure this team can compete with the best to ensure that Giannis remains committed and will be in five years.
