The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo even had to learn to drive a car, and a somewhat nervous Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond helped out a few times from the passenger seat of a Ford Edge. On Tuesday the Bucks player was put in another driver’s seat as he spoke with humor and candor to reporters about the four-year, $100 million contract he signed earlier in the day. “That’s crazy,” Antetokounmpo said about his driving lessons. “No GM in the league would even do that. We almost had a car accident outside the practice facility. Thank God I was too good of a driver. I avoided it at the last minute.”
Bucks general manager John Hammond: “There was a max number out there, and that was discussed, discussed internally and externally. And the one thing we asked Giannis to do was take that into consideration as we move forward. Give us every opportunity. We want to become a championship-level team. There’s going to be guys and guys who have done that, players who have given back some. And it’s a little bit of the time, as we move forward, hopefully we’re going to have other guys with the organization willing to do that. Those small pieces can turn into a bigger chunk at some point.”
