Earlier on this Saturday Antetokounmpo unfollowed the team and his teammates on Twitter and Instagram, after the bucks were ended from the postseason by the underdog Miami Heat in five games earlier this week.
With Antetokounmpo removed from the agency for only a year, the meeting will surely spur rumours about him leaving the small markets of the Bucks, but he has it made it clear that, at this point of life, that never his intention.
Antetokounmpo also denied that he would force a trade after the game of 5. And that’s never happening Antetokounmpo tell Haynes at the time.
“Some see a wall and go in; I plough through it. We just have to get better as a team, individually and get right back at it next season.
” 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 gets better as a team. But come back, and hopefully, we can build a culture in Milwaukee for many years that we can come out here and compete every single year for a championship,” he tells interviewer after Milwaukee’s Game 5 loss.
On Saturday the meeting, in light of Antetokounmpo’s previous quotes, was likely centred on how the Bucks can use this offseason to take the leap from contender to the champion.
The honeymoon period is over. He may not be ready to leave quite yet, And if the Bucks can’t convince him that they’re prepared to do whatever it takes to surround him with a winner, he may not be ill around for much longer
