Giannis Antetokounmpo Faces Uncertain Future after Second Playoff Exit

Giannis Antetokounmpo Faces Uncertain Future after Second Playoff Exit

Giannis Antetokounmpo has once again been one of the protagonists of the NBA playoffs, but not for the reason he would have liked. For the second consecutive year he has reached the decisive moment of the season with physical problems; so much so that on this occasion he has not even participated in the series that the Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Indiana Pacers 4-2. Questioned about what could have been his return during the postseason, the Greek admits that he was not even close to it happening.

«I did everything I could to come back and help my teammates. It’s kind of hard to see them out there and not be able to help them, but I just couldn’t. I did all the tests I had to do, with the protocols that must be followed to check the boxes. It wasn’t even close to checking the boxes. “I wasn’t close to coming back,” she clarifies.

The fact that due to injuries he is not being able to compete as he wishes is something that worries Giannis… and the franchise. The two-time NBA MVP recognizes that perhaps the time has come to make changes so that his future is more positive.

“Don’t know. Maybe a different pattern needs to be followed. Maybe try different things. I don’t like the word ‘rest’. If I can play, I will play. If I can’t play, I can’t play. I will surely sit down and think about what my summer will be like and what next year will be like,” she announces.

A new opportunity for the project

Although losing in the first round is not a dish of good taste for anyone, Giannis opts for moderation and understands that the context is very important; so much so that he understands that if everyone is healthy there is a real opportunity to be champions in the future.

«Obviously, he doesn’t feel well. The wound, you know, is fresh. It’s open. You just lost in the first round. But I’m not a guy who makes excuses. Right now, I think when Khris, Dame and Brook López were on the court and we were healthy, we were one of the best attacks in the NBA,” he emphasizes.
