Barack Obama urges Giannis Antetokounmpo ‘to be more public’
Obama believes Antetokounmpo has a lot to offer his community since he’s one of the best basketball players in the world:

By all accounts, Antetokounmpo loves playing for the Bucks and living in Milwaukee. He has said in the past he doesn’t like big-market cities such as New York or Los Angeles.
The Bucks have a great shot of winning the East this season and ultimately winning the championship. For that to happen, the Bucks will need Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe to play at a high level once the playoffs start and be effective second and third options on offense, respectively, behind Antetokounmpo.
Just like last season, the Bucks have the best record in the NBA. Antetokounmpo could very well win his second straight MVP award, too. He’s averaging 30.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 61.4 percent from the free-throw line.
