The Milwaukee Bucks run during the post-season was just unlucky. Despite having the best record in the league, they were kicked out brutally from the Playoffs by the Miami Heat.

Nevertheless, Giannis is still optimistic and wanted to share how far he has come. On twitter, he recently posted a video compilation of the best plays made by him, Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon. The video highlighted the similarities he has with the other two legends.

As the Bucks enter the offseason, they have a very important matter to address. Giannis is about to enter free agency in 2021, and there is no way the Bucks can afford to lose him. Even though Giannis has given assurance of not leaving them repeatedly, the speculations will only come to rest when he makes the official decision.

Giannis wants to win, and if he doesn’t find that drive in the Bucks, he might want to look for it elsewhere.
