Antetokounmpo’s role model is Golden State.스포츠토토
Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks had an interview with Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors on the day of the All-Star Game on the 20th (hereinafter Korean time). Adetokounmpo has revealed that to win this position he has to be like Golden State.
Antetokounmpo said, “We just need to create a good culture. Golden State has created a great culture for 6-7 years. Based on this culture, Golden State always has a chance to win no matter what rank it is in.”
As Antetokounmpo said, Golden State has built great achievements. Golden State built a dynasty by winning three championships in the mid-to-late 2010s with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Green at the forefront.
But where there is light, there is also shadow. Afterwards, Golden State faced various bad news such as the transfer of Durant and injuries to Thompson and Curry, and received a report card of failing to advance to the playoffs for two consecutive years. In the 2019-2020 season, they fell to the bottom of the Western Conference.
However, the culture that the Golden State team had built did not easily collapse. Golden State went straight to the playoffs last season as the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. They took the Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies, and Dallas Mavericks and headed to the Finals once again.
The final stage opponent is the Boston Celtics, who are united with spirit. Accordingly, Golden State faced the seasoned and won the Larry O’Brien Trophy with a series record of 4-2.
Antetokounmpo said, “We have to create a culture like Golden State. We’re trying to create a good culture, stay healthy, and show a competitive defense. This can give us a championship.”
So, what is the current situation in Milwaukee?
Milwaukee is in second place in the Eastern Conference with 41 wins and 17 losses as of the 21st. Only half a game behind first place Boston.
Antetokounmpo is leading the team with performances worthy of a Greek monster day after day. Cruz Halladay has been a presence on both sides of the ball and Brook Lopez has also emerged as a strong defender of the year contender. In other words, Milwaukee’s chances of winning are high.
Milwaukee won the 2021 Finals for the first time in 50 years. But Antetokounmpo was not satisfied. It is noteworthy whether he can lead the team to another championship by giving Milwaukee the DNA of victory like Golden State.
