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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: My mind should be focused on basketball but it’s not possible for it not to wander back to Greece. Even if you don’t want to think about it, the events won’t let you. I’m young and inexperienced to talk about these kinds of issues. I don’t possess the knowledge to judge and have an opinion. The only thing I’m entitled to share is my feelings. I feel sorrow for Greece and everything the people are going through. I know how hard it is. Honestly, for many years in my life, before I became 18 and got into the draft and the NBA, I felt first hand the stresses of survival. The insecurity, the feeling of not knowing what tomorrow will bring and how you will manage to survive.
