No Tweeting MVP Antetokounmpo While NBA Stars Roil League

October 24, 2021

While the introduction to the NBA season has seen talk about Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and Philadelphia 76ers head case Ben Simmons suspended and demanding a trade, Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo remains above the fray.

As humble as he is good – that’s what happens when you don’t forget life on the streets in Athens – he said he’s not paying attention to the swirl in the league as he tries to focus on repeating a championship.

“I’m not on social media, I’m not following what’s going on,” Antetokounmpo said, according to Bleacher Report. “I’m not following what’s going on out there, the moves are going, who’s being talked about now, who’s favored to win a championship. It doesn’t really matter.”

“All those things, who remembers who was the favorite? And who [was] the most talked about last year in December when the season started? Nobody remembers. So, those things don’t mean anything to me. I focus on the team, do whatever I can to help the team, get in shape because I know my team is going to need me moving forward,” he said.
