Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has listed winning an NBA Championship and having kids as the goals he would love to achieve in the next five years. Antetokounmpo, a back-to-back NBA MVP, reached a five-year, $228 million supermax extension with the Bucks this week and the talks about him potentially leaving Milwaukee came to an end.
"Have kids and to have a championship. That's all I want," Antetokounmpo said, when asked about his goals for the next five years, per ESPN. "I just want to have kids, being able to raise my kids, and win a championship.
After that, my life's complete. I can retire in five years. Nah, I'm joking."
Antetokounmpo appreciates the city of Milwaukee
Antetokounmpo, who was taken at No. 15 in the 2013 NBA draft, has spent his entire career with the Bucks.
"The way that this city has supported me and my family has been amazing since day one, since the day I walked in the Cousins Center gym and Bradley Center also. It's been amazing. I was 18. I'm 26 right now. All I know is Milwaukee," Antetokounmpo said.
"When I came here, all I knew is that this is a city that loves basketball.
It's a city that ... we have more things to do now, but when I came here, we had a lot of things to do, so I could just focus on basketball, and it's a place that I want to be. It's a place where I want to raise my kids, and I feel good here.
I feel that my family feels good here, so I'm good." The Bucks entered last season as one of the top favorites to win the title but ended up getting demolished by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
"I think we can get better. I believe we can be better. We've got better," Antetokounmpo said. "We have a great team. We have a great culture. I know that I'm working toward that goal. The front office is working toward that goal, so I'm good.
I'm happy. I think everybody's on the same page. "At the end of the day, you've got to look at the past. We've gotten better every single year. In my opinion, the last two years were realistically the two years where we fight for a championship. The years before that, there wasn't championship years, so it's not going to be easy."
