NBA news: Giannis Antetokounmpo is a dude who lives and breathes basketball. His whole life revolves around the sport, and this is one of the main reasons why he has become one of the top players in the game today.
Given his passion for the sport, you just know that the Milwaukee Bucks superstar is going to be around the game even after he hangs it up. Antetokounmpo won’t be retiring anytime soon, but it seems that he’s already hinted at a potential post-NBA career in a recent tweet.
Giannis Antetokounmpo on Potential Post-NBA Career: ‘Coaching Chose Me’
Antetokounmpo is still in China for his basketball camp, and it is clear that he’s taking this very seriously. The Bucks talisman wants to leave a legacy behind not only through his individual achievements but also, by helping develop the next generation of NBA hopefuls.
This is exactly what he has been doing in his camp. On Sunday, he took on the role of a coach as he barked instructions to his players from the sidelines. It seems that this is Giannis’ calling:
“What can I say, coaching chose me 😂” Giannis wrote in his caption.

It appears that this was just a scrimmage game between his camp players, but this did not prevent Antetokounmpo from being as passionate as he is on an NBA court. After all, you would expect nothing less from this man.
NBA News: Did Giannis Antetokounmpo Pull Out a Patrick Beverley?
At one point in the video, Giannis looked like he was showing a camera to the referee. Was he complaining about a certain play and trying to make his case by showing the replay on the camera? If so, then the Bucks superstar just pulled off a Patrick Beverley move:

To be fair, Antetokounmpo had a big smile on his face when he was speaking with the ref. When Pat Bev pulled this move this past season, he got a technical foul. It’s a good thing Giannis did not get the same treatment from the Chinese game official.
