Giannis Antetokounmpo refuses to complain about NBA bubble, “I’m extremely blessed”

Giannis has been through a lot worse.

Milwaukee Bucks center Giannis Antetokounmpo knows what it’s like to struggle growing up, as do many NBA players. And, while a number of them have offered criticism on the NBA’s Bubble in Orlando, the Greek superstar says he cannot complain.

“I’m in a situation where I’m extremely blessed and I cannot complain,” he told ESPN on Monday. “Obviously, it doesn’t matter where you are in life, there’s always something to complain, there’s always a problem and an issue. But I try to kind of not focus on that.

“So as I said, my apartment in Greece when I was younger, with my four brothers, was way smaller than the suite that I have in the hotel, so I’m just trying to enjoy the moment.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo has cut a mature figure as the leader of the Bucks and is focused on becoming an NBA champion following his MVP season in 2018/19.

The pandemic has forced several thousands of Americans out of work, some of whom will never get their jobs back. Of course, we can appreciate that the bubble conditions aren’t what NBA players are used to given their earning power, but they’re still in a much better position than a lot of folks and Antetokounmpo seems to understand this quite clearly.

Meanwhile, Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant has called out the players who have been complaining about the food in the bubble.
