The Greek Freak is staying put, at least that’s what said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd Monday. 

He was on the show the day after LeBron James announced he would leave his hometown team of the Cleveland Cavaliers and join the Los Angeles Lakers. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo said he’s got no plans to leave the Bucks in search of a championship, as other big-name NBA players have done throughout the ages. 

"My goal is to win in Milwaukee, bring a Championship to the city... I would never leave for LA,” he said on The Herd.

Antetokounmpo is definitely generating buzz around the league. This week he was named the “face” of this year’s edition of the popular video game NBA 2K. 

The Bucks’ star isn’t without his suitors. During this last season, the 76ers star Joel Embiid reportedly pitched Giannis on coming to Philly during the All-Star Game weekend.
