Kendrick Perkins believes the Milwaukee Bucks could see Giannis Antetokounmpo leave the team if they have another failed season.
The former NBA champion and current ESPN analyst said the “Greek freak” could stay with Milwaukee in the long term if the Bucks made it to the final and won the title.
“For the Milwaukee Bucks, who have had the best record in two seasons in a row, they have to make it to the NBA final. If they don’t make it to the NBA final, it’s a failed season, a failure season for them, and they’ll have concerns about signing Giannis for a long-term extension.
If you look back with LeBron James in 2009 and 2010, he had the best record in the league in both years, but he didn’t make it to the final and what did he do? He joined the Miami Heat. So when I’m Milwaukee Bucks I’m worried because if I don’t make it to the NBA final this year it’s going to be a bankrupt season and the chances of losing Giannis are very high, ”Perkins said Orlando Silva from Fadewaway World.
