NBA superstar and 2 x MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is known for his fiery game-plays and superior defense. He took his team, Milwaukee Bucks, to a title win in 2021. Giannis hopes he reflects his 2021 performance so that his squad pockets another title in the upcoming 2021-2022 NBA season. With the pre-season games started, the teams were warming up well, but Giannis was in a different mood altogether.
Giannis loves Skittles and not Oreo anymore. A video went viral on Twitter which Giannis posted with the caption, “I got the essentials packed,” with a laughing emoji and an airplane emoji. Giannis said, “Man, like the other night in the game. I love Skittles. Everybody was talking about like I’m addicted to Skittles. Give me one second because it’s kind of hard to grab. Hey yo somebody’s oh. Hey, last year was the Oreos, this year it’s the Skittles baby. Can’t go nowhere without. I’ll see you guys in Abu Dhabi.”
On Saturday’s preseason game, the Bucks played against the Memphis Grizzlies. Giannis was not playing the game but enjoying sitting out eating munchies, like popcorn and skittles. Giannis even tweeted, “I was hungry tonight,” with three laughing emojis. He even gave autographs to his young fans on their shoes.
Giannis Antetokounmpo on life after retirement
The Milwaukee Bucks superstar is only 27 years old but has already made plans for his future after he retires from the game. In his recent interview, Giannis said, “I want to be like Tim Duncan. Where the hell is Tim Duncan? I don’t know where Tim Duncan is.” He added, “When I retire from this game I want to disappear. I want to go somewhere where they’re not going to know me. I want to play the game, and then you forget about me; you don’t talk about me.”
It will be difficult for Giannis to stay out of the spotlight even after his retirement, as he has a massive fan following. He has 2.6 million followers on Twitter and 13.5 million followers on Instagram. Giannis has also got into the line of movies after he recently produced a documentary ‘The Flagmakers’ for National Geographic.
