With the Milwaukee Bucks facing elimination against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their second-round series, the team will have to keep its playoff hopes alive without its biggest star. Giannis Antetokounmpo has reportedly been ruled out for tonight’s game after suffering an injury in Game 4.
“At the end of the day, we’ve got to learn from everything that goes on in your life and in your career and hopefully we can learn from this and get better as a team and come back and hopefully we can build a culture in Milwaukee for many years that we can come out […]
The centerpiece of a possible trade with the Bucks would be Thompson, Green or Andrew Wiggins. Thompson is one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, but he is a 30-year-old who doesn’t excel at creating his own shot and might struggle leading an offense. Green, also 30, is an elite role player with a […]
Antetokounmpo played Game 4. If he feels the same way entering Game 5, he’ll play that, too. Antetokounmpo aggravated his injury and left Game 4.

With the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks eliminated in the second round by the No. 5 seed Miami Heat, fans and front offices from Golden State to Miami then north to Toronto — and everywhere in between — are plotting how to entice and trade for another disgruntled superstar.
His contract is set to expire in 2021. He could sign a five-year super-max extension this offseason, but the economic downturn caused by coronavirus adds uncertainty. Antetokounmpo could wait until 2021 free agency, when the same contract terms will be available to him with the Bucks (and other teams can offer deals).
“Winning is important, we had high expectations starting the season, throughout the season, coming here, you always want to realise those expectations. But the relationships, the character, what this group did, I think it would be great if you could have both, but I think if you’re going to choose one, I’d like to be […]
According to The Ringer, “multiple league sources” have claimed that the Clippers will try to acquire Antetokounmpo. The NBA superstar has one year left on his current deal, and is eligible for a huge extension this offseason. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
