Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Determination: Chasing Championships with the Milwaukee Bucks

3 min read

In a recent exclusive interview with The New York Times, Milwaukee Bucks’ forward Giannis Antetokounmpo opened up about his journey and aspirations.

During the 2020-21 season, when Giannis felt disheartened, he confided in his brother Thanasis, who was also playing for the Bucks at the time. Thanasis assured him that if Giannis wasn’t happy, they could leave together. “I could have left in 2020,” Giannis admitted, emphasizing his concern for happiness and his children’s well-being.

Upon the Bucks’ suggestion, Giannis turned to sports psychologists for assistance. This step aided him in finding coping mechanisms for stress. Rediscovering the joy of playing basketball, Giannis led the Bucks to secure the championship that season. “I believe it was the best feeling I’ve ever had in my basketball career,” he reflected.

Yearning for a repeat, Giannis expressed his desire to win another championship.

Last season, the Bucks faced an early exit from the playoffs, only winning one game against the Miami Heat due to Giannis nursing an injury.

In response, the Bucks parted ways with coach Mike Budenholzer and welcomed Adrian Griffin, a former Raptors assistant coach. Giannis admitted that these changes contributed to his uncertainty about re-signing with the team.

“It’s about seeing the situation. How the coach will be, how we’ll be together. Ultimately, I feel like all my teammates, all the organization knows that I want to win a championship. As long as we’re on the same page, you show me we can win a championship together, I’m in. When I feel like, oh, yeah, we’re in a rebuilding phase—”

He paused briefly before continuing, “I will never have a bad feeling about the Milwaukee Bucks. I believe we’ve had an incredible 10 years, and without a doubt, I’ve given everything to the city of Milwaukee. Everything. Every night, even when I was injured. I’m a Buck. My blood is green. I know this.”

“This is my team, and it will always be my team. I won’t forget the people who supported me, who made me great, who showed the world who I am, who gave me a platform. But we have to win again,” Giannis affirmed.

With the goal of completing 20 NBA seasons, Giannis expressed his desire to spend these two decades with a single team, similar to legends like Dirk Nowitzki, Kobe Bryant, and Tim Duncan.

“But at the end of the day, as a winner, it’s beyond that goal. Winning the championship is the top priority. I don’t want to spend 20 years with one team and not win another championship,” Giannis concluded.
