Giannis Antetokounmpo has been mentioned in some free agency rumors with all the madness going on, and he channeled his Kendrick Lamar to fight them.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has had his name thrown around in some free agency rumors for the last few days, but it doesn’t look like the young stud will be leaving the Milwaukee Bucks anytime soon.
Just earlier in the day, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski appeared on The Ryen Russilo Show to discuss some of the rumors about the league after Gordon Hayward officially signed to the Boston Celtics, and Antetokounmpo’s name came up as a hot topic.
“The clock has started,” Wojnarowski said on the show. “Everybody in the league is trying to figure out how they are going to get him out of there. That has started.”
Well, Antetokounmpo must have caught wind of the speculation around him wanting out of Milwaukee at some point soon, and took to Twitter to fire back at the reporters trying to cause some rift in the Bucks organization.
In a tweet on Thursday night, the Greek Freak got creative when trying to address the speculation, and he decided to bust out some Kendrick Lamar lyrics. He used the lyrics to profess his loyalty to his current team and attempt to put an end to the rumors surrounding him.
It’s worth noting that Antetokounmpo did add in a little buck emoji to end off the tweet, and we all know how important emojis are in the modern day NBA social media world.
The Greek Freak did sign a 4-year extension just last season, so we still have a bit of time before the free agency bug truly becomes a big issue in Milwaukee. However, it doesn’t seem like we’d get a little Woj bomb like that without some justification, especially for one of the league’s biggest stars.
