Apparently, the Milwaukee Bucks superstar isn’t interested in taking his talents to South Beach, joining a super team in California or taking a bite out of the Big Apple. 

In an interview with the New York Times, Giannis Antetokounmpo said he’s perfectly happy where he is. 

“I’m a low-profile guy,” Antetokounmpo told the Times. “I don’t like all these flashy cities like L.A. or Miami. I don’t know if I could be the same player if I played in those cities.”

The Greek Freak will likely be a popular target in 2021 when his contract is up, just like other All-Star former Bucks including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

But with a new arena on the way and a team that made a splash in playoffs last season, coupled with Antetokounmpo’s Most Improved Player award and Malcolm Brogdon’s Rookie of the Year honor, the team appears it could be a contender.
