Giannis Antetokounmpo recently visited Los Angeles with his family, and TMZ caught him just leaving a popular restaurant, Catch, on Wednesday. A reporter asked Giannis about the meal he just had at the fancy restaurant, to which the former MVP responded it was nice but surprisingly costly even for someone like Giannis.
"Expensive, expensive," Antetokounmpo said. "This city's not for me."
Giannis is the most humble player in the NBA
In the entire NBA, Giannis has had a reputation as someone who is still incredibly modest despite signing a $228 million contract extension with the Bucks two years ago. His upbringing, which was far from privileged and luxurious on the streets of Greece, always stayed with him, which is why he is still one of the most down-to-earth NBA players despite being one of the best players in the league.
Giannis is known to enjoy different types of meals, and how can we forget when he ordered 50 chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A after winning his first NBA championship. Apart from chicken nuggets, Giannis was in awe when he discovered Oreo cookies and milk are a great mix together.
Even though Giannis can afford any meal anywhere in the world, his simplicity and modesty are probably the main reasons why one won't see him at fancy restaurants all the time while having an attitude where he still understands where he came from and what actually has meaning to him personally. With all that taken into account and knowing what type of city L.A. is, it's safe to say we won't see Giannis considering playing for the Lakers or the Clippers anytime in the near future.
