Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo responds to Orlando bubble concerns
Milwaukee Bucks superstar small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo grew up in poverty in Greece.
With that said, the Bucks star has no complaints about the bubble conditions at Walt Disney World.
“I’m in a situation where I’m extremely blessed and I cannot complain,” Giannis Antetokounmpo told Bucks reporters, via Eric Woodyard of ESPN.
“Obviously, it doesn’t matter where you are in life, there’s always something to complain, there’s always a problem and an issue. But I try to kind of not focus on that. So as I said, my apartment in Greece, when I was younger, with my four brothers, was way smaller than the suite that I have in the hotel, so I’m just trying to enjoy the moment.”
The Bucks, along with the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz and Miami Heat, are staying at the Gran Destino Tower at Disney World. It is the newest hotel at the Walt Disney Campus.
Before the 2020 playoffs start, all 22 teams in Orlando will play in eight seeding games. The Bucks will face the Celtics, Houston Rockets, Brooklyn Nets, Heat, Dallas Mavericks, Raptors, Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies.
Prior to the season getting suspended in March, Antetokounmpo was averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists for the Bucks. He is widely expected to win his second straight MVP Award despite the stellar play of Lakers superstar LeBron James.
Milwaukee lost to the Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals in six games after taking a 2-0 series lead. Antetokounmpo and Co. are certainly motivated to redeem themselves this year.
