Giannis Antetokounmpo: For as long as I can, I’ll always be in the national team. As long as I’m healthy and as much as I have a say in it, I want to play for Greece. I know that, one day a lot might depend on me for the team to achieve its goals and I already feel that responsibility. I think about the fact that, in ten years from now, there’s a chance that some of my brothers might also be playing in the national team and that seems amazing to me! To be able to say, ‘I’m going off to play for my country,’ and to know that you’ll be playing with members of your family. All of us playing for our country! That’s a big dream.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo: (Anthony Davis) was trying to post me and I was using all of my strength, I didn’t let him. He turns around, shoots off balance and scores. As we were running side-by-side, he says to me: You can’t guard me young fella! As we were running together towards the Bucks’ offense, I process it and think about it. Dude, what are you talking about? You’re only a year older than me! In the next possession he was defending me and I scored that shot where I faked and I let the ball in with the left hand.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: Plus the additions that have been made and that will be made. We’ve also started the project of the new arena, there is a lot of enthusiasm in the fans as well. Everything seems ideal and I believe the conditions will be in place for us to play a leading role. It seems distant now, but in a few years we might reach the level to be thinking about a championship. Okay, if LeBron said to me ‘Come to my team and play with me,’ I’d think about it! (laughs) He’s the best player in the world and a member of that exclusive group of the best that have ever played the game. Still, though, the Milwaukee Bucks would come first. They will always be the team that gave me my chance and opened up the doors to paradise.

Greek Freak Buck for life?

Giannis Antetokounmpo: The Bucks and John Hammond chose me in the draft, got me in the NBA, kept me in the team with a role from my very first season and they are my basketball family. Not only that, but already at this young age, they have enough faith in me as a leader and they are doing everything in order to develop all of my potential. From my side, I feel that I want to be playing in the Bucks. I’m not talking about my next contract. The way I feel now, I want to keep playing for the Milwaukee Bucks for the next 20 years! You never know how life turns out. Three years ago I was thinking that I might be playing for Filathlitikos forever! All of a sudden, the draft emerged, the NBA, the Bucks and everything that followed. I don’t know how I’ll be feeling and thinking in 2, 3 or more years. Right now I feel like I want to play for the Milwaukee Bucks forever.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: I don’t want to think so far ahead into the future. Sometimes I think about the fact that everything is going so well in my life… I’m playing in the NBA and I’ve made a great start. Thanasis is working and is waiting for his chance. Little Kostas is already playing basketball, Alex is growing up, my parents are happy. I think to myself, it’s not possible that everything is going so well. When is something bad going to happen? Not everything can be perfect. I think about the fact that I want my family and I to be healthy. That is what makes me more anxious, not basketball. If everything turns out the way I dream about in the coming period in my life, then I’ll be fine as far as basketball is concerned… The only thing that there is no chance I will have learned how to do when I’m 25 is to paint! I’m a terrible painter.
