Warriors fans responded to the tweet with excitement. They believe that Antetokounmpo will soon join Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green and revitalize their title hopes.

Of course, Antetokounmpo selecting the Warriors in NBA 2K could mean anything and nothing. Maybe Antetokounmpo is more comfortable playing with the team in 2K. But the rumors between the Greek Freak and the Steve Kerr-led squad has been circulating all season long.
Antetokounmpo is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. Before, he said that he wants to be loyal to the Bucks and vowed to stay in Milwaukee for the rest of his career.
However, analysts strongly believe that if the Bucks fail to win a title before Antetokounmpo becomes a free agent, then the Greek Freak might reconsider his stance. This is where the Warriors enter the picture.
The only reason why the Warriors had a losing record in the 2019-20 season was that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were out with injuries. Draymond Green, too, missed several games. But the fact of the matter is that the Dubs' core — which led brought them three rings in five years — are pretty much intact.
And when it comes to luring in big-name free agents, just look at Kevin Durant.
