Giannis Antetokounmpo Says He Might Play For One Legendary NBA Team In The Future

This came out of nowhere. Just one year into his 5-year, $228M contract with the Milwaukee Bucks (and a world title under his belt), Giannis Antetokounmpo suggested he's leaving open the possibility of joining the Chicago Bulls in the future.

The two-time league MVP called it a "no-brainer" of wanting to play with the Bulls, saying "everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know."

But never fear, Deer fans... the Greek Freak confirmed that "right now I am committed to Milwaukee." 

Antetokounmpo has risen to the status of possibly the best player in the world during his 9 years with the Bucks, so the comments certainly made Milwaukee fans nervous, nevertheless. 

The question came up while he was making an appearance on a Chicago news program, and his response was one that has been setting the NBA Twitter-verse ablaze.

"I think anybody you ask that question to anybody that plays basketball, if he said no, he'd be a liar. It's a team that won multiple championships. It's a team with one of the greatest players—if not the greatest player to ever play this game—played for."

Michael Jordan, of course, hasn't played for the Bulls in 24 years, but that doesn't mean that Giannis can't dream...
