Milwaukee Bucks superstar and two-time reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo sparked rumors of a doable transfer to the Lakers after mentioning LeBron James and Kobe in a current interview with Greek community Cosmote.
As one of essentially the most wanted free agents within the league, fans have been on the lookout for clues as as to if Antetokounmpo will stick with the Bucks or go to another team. He responded to the opportunity of leaving Milwaukee, stating, “Everyone has opinions. But at the end of the day, I will do what is best for my family. I do not see why I could not be in Milwaukee for several years. As long as Milwaukee and I are on the same page when it comes to being one of the best teams in the League and winning championships, that’s fine. When it changes, it will not be good.”
He then added, “It depends on what decisions they make. If they make the right decision, I’ll be there for many years. If they do not, we’ll see. The NBA is business and we take it day by day. Hopefully, we can succeed together.”

You’ve never heard something bad for him, he is out doing his job. He’s just very competitive.” He additionally mentioned, “This is a statement that I have never made before. If LeBron and Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis came to Milwaukee I would be happy. I am not interested if I am the top, second or third name, ok? I just want to win.”
