Giannis jokes (?) about taking time off for Greek freakout

KIFI

BOSTON (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks are still alive in the NBA playoffs, but star Giannis Antetokounmpo is already joking about his plans for next year.  After scoring 40 points to help the Bucks take a 3-2 lead over Boston in the Eastern Conference semifinals, the two-time MVP asked reporters out of the blue: “If I don’t play after this season, do I still get paid? Do you guys know how it works?” Antetokounmpo was asked how he would spend his sabbatical. He said: “I would disappear. I would go to an island in Greece, stay with my family and disappear for a year.” As he walked off, he added: “I’m being serious.”
