The 2019-20 NBA playoffs saw back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo unable to lead his team past the second round. They collapsed against the eventual Eastern Conference champions Miami Heat in just five games.
However, next season will begin soon and the Greek Freak is definitely missing the game of basketball right now. He recently shared a video on his Twitter account regarding the same.
“I miss it.. Never take it for granted.”
The new season will most probably begin on December 22, as the NBA and NBPA are currently working out the details. Hopefully, both the players and fans will soon get to enjoy the game of basketball once again.
Once these details are sorted out, the league will be back in action. However, Giannis has a much bigger decision to make in the coming months. Should he stay with the Bucks or test FA agency in 2021?
Although Giannis is yet to give a hint about his future, most people already believe he will be out of Milwaukee after this season.
The most immediate goal for the Greek Freak must be to win an NBA championship. In the last two seasons, he has been nothing but sensational in the regular season. But during the playoffs, the Bucks are stopped in their tracks.
One of the biggest, if not the biggest, reasons for that is the playing style of Giannis himself. He still doesn’t have a consistent jumper, which is exposed every year in the postseason. However, on the Bucks’ front, if they want to keep Giannis happy, they need to surround him with better shooters.
If Antetokounmpo is surrounded by efficient 3-pt shooters, it will give him more space to play his natural game. So in the upcoming free agency, the Bucks need to pull some strings and get a better point guard to support their superstar.
But if they fail to do so, there is a huge chance that the Bucks will lose their franchise player in the 2021 Free Agency.
What can Giannis Antetokounmpo do to improve his game before the 2020-21 season begins?
