Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo may just be the best and most dominant player in the NBA, and the best is only ahead of him, being only 27 years old. His loyalty to the Milwaukee Bucks has been admirable and rewarded with the 2021 Championship, as he has become a true hero of the city and the franchise. Even though it's difficult to imagine him in any other jersey, a recent interview has worried Bucks fans and raised the hopes of one particular franchise that would definitely welcome the addition of "The Greek Freak."

Glorious history

Giannis has expressed numerous times his love for the city of Milwaukee and the desire to bring them a championship. After finally fulfilling his goal and adding a ring to his impressive individual resume, the question has been raised if Antetokounmpo would find a new challenge somewhere else.

His contract has him tied up with the Bucks until 2026, and considering the roster, he will be fighting for more championships in the years to come. But when the time comes and Giannis is in his 30s', with everything possible achieved behind him, there is a true chance that he would find a new challenge and possibly finish his career somewhere else.

A recent interview in which Giannis spoke glowingly of Michael Jordan, the Bulls, and their illustrious history made waves, as the Greek forward even admitted there is a chance he would once put on a Bulls jersey, throwing their fans into a frenzy:

"I think anybody who is asked that question and would say no, he's a liar. It's a team that won multiple championships, it's the team with one of the greatest, if not the greatest players to ever play this game played for. It's a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. Maybe I play for Chicago, but right now I am committed to Milwaukee."

Although the image of Giannis in a Bulls jersey sounds pretty awesome for everyone except Bucks fans, it's far-fetched. Being the loyal guy he is, Giannis will definitely honor his contract to the end, and even then, it's hard to see such a family-oriented and low-key guy leave the city of Milwaukee for one of the biggest markets in the NBA.

But as Giannis said, you can't rule out anything. If he ever decided o leave, it seems the Bulls will be the frontrunner for the Giannis sweepstakes. Even in his 30s', Giannis will still be a force and one of the best players in the game, considering his work ethic and constant improvment. Bulls fans would certainly hope he gives them at least a glimpse of what they used to have with MJ in the 90s'.
