Every NBA player spends the offseason in their own way, while some like to relax, others train even harder. The 2-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo definitely falls in the latter category.
After a poor 2020 NBA postseason, Giannis is determined to bounce back even stronger. The Greek Freak shared a sneak peek of his summer training regime on Instagram.
“I don’t usually do this. But here you go! An inside look at my summer workout @rickythomason”
Looking at the video, Giannis looks ready for the next season. However, a dark shroud of uncertainty veils his future in the league. Despite still being under contract with the Bucks, many believe he will soon be out of the team.
However, the Bucks are adding more help around Giannis. They acquired Jrue Holiday to the team via trade, which improved the team’s defense. Regardless, the Greek Freak is yet to sign an extension.
Whatever be the case, so far it seems like Giannis is looking to stick around for yet another year. But does he have enough help around him to lead the Bucks to a title?
Can Giannis Antetokounmpo lead the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA Championship?
For the last two seasons, Giannis and the Bucks have dominated the regular season. Despite finishing at the top of the table in both seasons, the Bucks failed to achieve anything significant in the postseason.
This season, the Bucks were completely shut off by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. The Heat played an incredible defense on Giannis in the final moments of the games. In fact, they forced Giannis to taking more jumpers rather than letting him drive to the lane.
As a result, the Heat closed games pretty easily by lowering Giannis’ impact. But looking at Giannis’ workout videos, he is trying to improve that aspect of his game. If he can develop a consistent jumper, it would shut the surrounding critics up for good.
But what are your thoughts? Should Giannis Antetokounmpo leave the Bucks after running it back this year? Or should he sign a massive extension in hopes of leading them to an NBA title?
