The future of the reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the hottest topics in the league. Many analysts are speculating that the Greek Freak will leave the Milwaukee Bucks if the team fails to win a championship next season.
Despite finishing the regular season with the best record, the Bucks once again failed to win a championship in 2020. Milwaukee was expected to at least reach the Finals, but were knocked out by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Should Giannis decide to leave Milwaukee, two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh thinks he would fit perfectly with the Miami Heat.
Per Complex Sports:
“Yeah, that’d be pretty good. But I mean, yeah, it’s tough, man. I mean, they’ve had a crack at it. They were right there. They’ll have another opportunity next year. But that’d be devastating and painful for him in the city, if they don’t even at least make it to the Finals. I mean, in being in that position, you know, what do you do? Let’s be frank. I mean, I don’t really see a big time free agent, saying, ‘I’m going to Milwaukee’. Um, and that’s what makes it so tough sometimes. And they’ve done it the right way they’ve built around him. It’ll be really tough, man. And, and the allure of the game, it’s gonna be so many people coming after him.”
“I mean, if you look at Miami, that’s, um, he fits in perfectly there. And just like you say, with Golden State, but that’s always going to be the thing, right? We’ve got cap space, and you fit in here.”
