  • Rachel Nichols, Brian Windhorst and David Fizdale react to comments made by Milwaukee Bucks GM Jon Horst on The Woj Pod about Giannis Antetokounmpo possibly staying with the team in 2021 NBA free agency, with Windhorst saying Giannis' exit would mean the supermax experiment has failed.

    what i would give to see giannis in a clippers jersey

    Ummm Rachel, please stop talking for a minute and think. Your statement was ridiculous. It's not a bribe as you say. It's called incentive, security, and reward. You get security and maximum money. Ask Isiah Thomas how he feels missing on that Supermax from Boston. Lastly, The Supermax doesn't have to be offered.

    Giannis needs to win, he needs to win a ring if he doesnt win one he needs to leave. I cant see him rot in milwaukee never getting a ring. That would just be tragic and he deserves better.

    Luka and Giannis alone on 1 team would create the scariest dynasty in sports history! 70s Yankees wont have nothing on this team.

    Am sorry it sucks for an organization like Milwaukee has to bend over backwards to keep Giannis, but just like my Dallas Mavs, we dont attract superstars. And I believe Milwaukee is least desirable for superstars to play than Dallas! So if Milwaukee doesn't get close to the big show, atleast ECF, Giannis walks.

    Also the Media wants the huge stars like Giannis in big markets in LA or NY, not in Wisconsin. ESPN wants to push him out of the door.

    Giannis is not going anywhere, the Bucks are building a winner for this decade.

    The media wants Giannis to join a big market like the warriors and build a super team but we all know if that was to happen everyone would complain on how unfair it is.

    The Knicks ain't had a legit contending team since literally The Alan Houston led 99-00 team. Yet this horseshit media station jerks off to the idea of a superstar putting on a Knicks jersy. FOH. Win a title with Milwaukee Giannis and you are more elite than Kd will ever be

  • Eric Klinka
    Eric Klinka 10 days ago

    I dont think you can compare Giannis to the rest of the superstars in the league. He only cares about his team, I dont think his pride would let him walk away from Milwaukee to chase rings with another superstar.

    Milwaukee is a shithole, it is completely segregated. And ranks in the top 10 worst cities to live in in the United States. Hmmmmm. Yeah, I'll take my check into another city and cash it in there. Where people are living has a bigger role than where they are playing.

    Giannis has given 0 indication he wants to leave. Unbelievable we have to fabricate stories to try to get Giannis out of Milwaukee. He’s not leaving, period. Stop trying, he doesn’t want to play for the Knicks!! 😂😂

    I love how they start with credit to Milwaukee and they done a great job with creating culture and family. Then they go to he will leave definitely and go to LA, lmfao yeah right cause Giannis is definitely that type of dude.

    if that happens.why have small market clubs that no one wants to be in.everyone wants to form super super allstar teams in glitzy places.get rid of free agency and keep the league competitive.sounds extreme but itd be great for the fans.if a player wants out it should be voted

    Indenture servitude. Well paid indenture servitude. In most other jobs, two week notice. Stop trying to overzealously make small markets relevant. Sometimes, people just don't like them. It happens. He paid his dues for half a decade, why make this young man suffer more by forcing him to live in Milwaukee. Have you no sympathy?

  • Im Sad
    Im Sad 17 days ago

    Why would he leave? The Bucks are awesome right now, steamrolling the league, and he can get the most money. It's his team, just like Dirk in Dallas. If he wins 1 ring, it will be more valuable than any possible super team rings.

    Milwaukee will NEVER win another nba finals championship..the only shot they had was last year..Heat, Celtics and even the Raptors could beat them in a 7 game series...

    I appreciate the love Milwaukee is getting but we gotta be honest with ourselves, Milwaukee will never have the appeal of cities like LA, Miami, New York or even Boston

      Twiz KB or even Toronto We have the biggest Greek and African population outside of their countries so in North America and we are international something to 29 other team cannot provide for him

    If Giannis goes to anywhere else other than GOLDEN STATE he is making the biggest mistake of his career. He goes to the Lakers him and LeBron will never work out. GIANNIS AND CURRY all the way my money is on them.

    I hope Giannis stays in Milwaukee just so ESPN can shut the F up about it and move on to the next emerging player in a small market. I really wish they'd stop grouping a city of 600K in a 2M metro area with another 8M people living within 100 miles as some god-foresaken no mans land devoid of any culture. Giannis is ALREADY getting endorsements. He's already a global ambassador.

    And it's not like he goes clubbing or cares about strip clubs. He's a family man. His family is in Milwaukee. His wife / girlfriend is from Milwaukee. He's said he likes how people there don't bother him. I'm from Milwaukee and have lived all over the US. Milwaukee has great restaurants, plenty to do (if you're bored you're not trying), and if you do right by them - are incredibly loyal and supportive of their players.
