September 28, Beijing time, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was interviewed on Media Day, during which he talked about free throws during the finals, goals for the new season and other topics.
It has been more than two months since the Bucks won the NBA championship last season, but Antetokounmpo still hopes to maintain the same fighting spirit as the team had in the previous championship. “Are we satisfied? I’m not complacent, I’m not even satisfied at all,” Antetokounmpo said at today’s press conference. “This is how we as a team and as the leader of this team must decide. The tone of the game. I know that those teams will come to us, but we will be prepared.”
Like Antetokounmpo, his teammates also expressed similar views. Last season, the Bucks won the team’s first championship since the 1970-71 season. Now they are ready to start training camp, turn over the chapter of last season, and concentrate on defending their championship title. Therefore, Antetokounmpo does not want to spend too much time on the media day to focus on last season.
“Now what I want is to be better. I don’t care about trophies, I don’t care about MVP, I don’t care about the Defensive Player of the Year, all of which I don’t care about. What I care about is how to become better, because if I do When it arrives, more things will come.” Brother Antetokounmpo said, “This is what I have done throughout my career and the reason why I am able to get to where I am now. So I didn’t feel the pressure relieved, and I still maintained peace. The same pressure. Obviously, I enjoy it. We are champions, but the pressure is still the same.”
Of course, Antetokounmpo can really get better, and there is room for improvement, such as free throws. In the sixth game of the Finals last season, he scored 19 free throws and hit 17 of them. In this regard, Antetokounmpo smiled and said: “If I can show that expression, life will be very good. In order to win that game, I have to free goals. There will be many key games that require me to free goals. This I must improve.”
Antetokounmpo also talked about the way those NBA stars maintain motivation, and he also has his own motivation. “We know that we are the NBA championship in 2021, but now, we are just the Milwaukee Bucks. No one believes us, no one believes that we can do it again.” Antetokounmpo said.
According to previous reports, as of now, 90% of NBA players have been vaccinated against the new crown, including Giannis Antetokounmpo. When talking about vaccination, Antetokounmpo said: “I made the best choice for the safety of myself and my family.” (Chenchen)Return to Sohu to see more
