The Milwaukee Bucks are preparing to return to the court in the Orlando “bubble”, hoping that they are going to win it all.

Back in April, Giannis Antetokounmpo has said he was not playing basketball during the NBA hiatus. However, in his latest session with the media in Orlando, the Greek Freak admitted the statement was a ruse to get a competitive advantage against opponents.

“Anybody out there that thought I didn’t have access to a gym, they don’t even know me,” Antetokounmpo said, per ESPN’s Eric Woodyard. “So, I just said that to try to get a little bit ahead of the competition.”

Before the season suspension, the Bucks superstar had made a case to win the second MVP award of his career putting up a career-best 29.6 points and 13.7 rebounds along with 6 assists in 30.9 minutes per game.

He had led the Bucks to the top of the East for the second time in the last two seasons. The Milwaukee Bucks, with Giannis on top basketball form, are obviously one of the favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference and even win the NBA title in the Orlando “bubble”.
