Giannis Antetokounmpo enters this offseason with just one year remaining on his current contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. When superstars like Antetokounmpo hit this point in their career the NBA world watches with bated breath to see what they will do. It is a story we have seen unfold with the likes of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and many more. Each player had their own unique circumstances and each player handled their situation very differently.
This is the second in a series of posts and podcasts that will compare Giannis’ situation with one year remaining on his contract to other superstars at that point in their career. For each comparison I will be speaking with a fan/writer/media member that experienced the other superstar’s situation firsthand and will compare it to Giannis’ situation, focusing on overall team performance, player performance, supporting cast and contract specifics. Next up in the series … Anthony Davis.
These two players have very similar statistics and playing styles, but their approaches to the end of their contracts could not be more different. To discuss all of this, I spoke with good friend and host of the Pel Pals Podcast, Hudson Coley. Enjoy!
