There’s no denying it’d be tough, but the Golden State Warriors should do what they can to help Giannis Antetokounmpo chase greatness.
The Golden State Warriors have been the NBA’s best team over the past few seasons, and that lines up well with the league’s reigning MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s desire to be “chasing greatness.”
Giannis has seemingly been inspired following ESPN’s releasing of “The Last Dance,” a documentary taking fans back to the days of the early-90s Bulls. The Michael Jordan-led team won six titles and took no single game for granted.
It was the desire within Jordan that kept him atop the league for such an extended period of time, and that energy wasn’t just a day or week-long mission, but a lifelong one. Giannis pointed that out in a tweet about the informational series.
Giannis wants greatness, and although his last few seasons have been great, he’s yet to cap a season with an NBA title. He needs to find a management that can build a roster that’ll take him there, and for now, it hasn’t been in Milwaukee.
Already good friends with Stephen Curry, it’d be a perfect combination. Giannis could enter the Bay Area and continue the legacy that Curry and Klay Thompson had started. The three titles could quickly turn into six, just as MJ did with his Bulls.
Greatness, by many standards in the NBA, equates to championships. The Bay knows how to win titles, and while Kevin Durant helped the team for two of them, the Warriors are still a top-notch program with one of the best front offices in the league.
The Warriors have the assets to trade for Giannis, if the Bucks would take a trade involving up to three first-round picks, a few of which could be in the lottery. But, if it’s for the 25-year-old MVP, there’s no telling how much Bob Myers would give.
If it’s greatness he wants, Golden State can help there, but if it’s loyalty to the fanbase that took a risk on him, he’ll stay in Milwaukee the long haul.
