But a few years ago, that wasn’t the case.
Do you remember when Antetokounmpo’s Bucks went 15-67 in the 2013-14 NBA season?
Feels like forever ago, doesn’t it?
8 years ago today, Giannis Antetokounmpo tweeted this after the #Bucks went 15-67 during the 2013-14 season.
Since this tweet:
• 2x MVP
• NBA Champion
• NBA Finals MVP
• 6x All-Star
• NBA 75th Anniversary Team
Giannis has done it all while staying faithful to Milwaukee. pic.twitter.com/Qc8ZMaLWEg

Bucks beat writer Kyle Malzhan hasn’t forgotten – and he’s dug up an old tweet to show just how loyal Antetokounmpo has been since then.
In the tweet, the Greek Freak said, “I’ll never leave the team and the city of Milwaukee till we build the team to a championship level team..”
He continued: “It needs a lot of work but me and the guys are ready to take the challenge..”
That definitely ended up being the case and just a few years later, Antetokounmpo was a two-time MVP and the team had become champions.
And he still shows no sign of leaving Milwaukee behind.
Not Budging From The Bucks
It seems like Antetokounmpo is going to remain with the Bucks as long as they’ll have him.
In other words, he will be there for a very long time.
Now, things can happen and plans can change but currently, Antetokounmpo feels like Steph Curry, a player who is going to stick it out with his team through thick and thin.
And there is a good chance that Antetokounmpo and his team could be back in the Finals soon.
They are still very talented and powerful and, when healthy, very hard to beat.
Their plan for the upcoming season is to follow a gameplan very similar to last season’s and push through the Eastern Conference and make it all the way to the Finals.
