Giannis is happy for Steph and the Warriors
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo knows what it’s like to win it all with the team who drafted him. Much like Steph Curry did with the Golden State Warriors, Giannis promised the city of Milwaukee he would not leave the Bucks before delivering a championship. Fulfilling that promise in 2021, Giannis achieved legendary status in Milwaukee, and has no plans to go anywhere.
While he would have loved to repeat with another ring, Giannis is happy for Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. “Obviously, I know the Warriors have won the championship, congrats to them. They worked extremely hard, played through adversity. They’ve been together 10 years, had a great decade. It’s unbelievable, it’s a dynasty,” Giannis said on the Renaissance Man podcast with Jalen Rose. “And Steph Curry… there’s nobody I think in the world right now that deserved that trophy more than him. He played his butt off and I’m happy for them.”
Giannis Antetokounmpo has consistently shown love to Steph Curry and the Warriors, recently saying, “It’s been an unbelievable dynasty for them. For those three guys, from where they started to where they are right now, it’s been an unbelievable journey. For every team, for every player, we want to accomplish the same things. They are setting the example for us.”
With both the Warriors and the Bucks both having their eyes on next year’s title, the two teams could potentially face off in the Finals. For now, Giannis is appreciating the example Steph and the Warriors have set for players like himself.
