Former Bucks Guard Jason Terry Explains Why Giannis Antetokounmpo Will Never Join A Superteam


In a recent interview with Howard Beck of Bleacher Report, former Bucks point guard and Mavs legend Jason Terry recently explained why Giannis Antetokounmpo was not a star who would join the super-team movement.

“Giannis, his DNA, his makeup is, he has the ability to carry a team to the championship level himself,” Terry told B/R.

“I think he’s still enjoying the challenge of trying to take on the world’s best, like LeBron, head to head. Trying to take on guys like KD head-to-head. And he’s really enjoying that matchup and embracing it. I mean, he wants to be the best player in the NBA. I’ve heard him say that on multiple occasions.”

In recent years, we've seen a trend in the NBA where stars want to work together in an effort to win the Championship. Whether it's by forming a literal super-team or finding time in the offseason to work out with each other, we are seeing a very friendly league nowadays.

For the Greek Freak, he wants no part. He enjoys the battles, he relishes in the hardships, and he enjoys overcoming the odds. We know that he turned down invitations to work out with stars like LeBron in the past, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that he wouldn't want to team up with him, either.

Is it a harder path to take? Sure. But isn't it refreshing to see this mentality so alive for one of the NBA's biggest names?
