Giannis Antetokounmpo reveals his future plan to be Head Coach after His NBA Career Is Over

Though it might not be what you expect, Giannis Antetokounmpo will continue to play in the NBA for many more years. The Greek Freak revealed he sees his future on the sidelines after a successful coaching performance in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game over the weekend.

‘When I retire, I want to be a head coach,’ Antetokounmpo told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. ‘A lot of people don’t know that about me, but I want to be a head coach. I really want to be.’

The two-time MVP is aware of the challenges of leading some of the finest basketball teams in the world. ‘It’s kind of hard because you have no control. And, I know the game of basketball, I know how to play the game of basketball, so it’s hard,’ he noted.

Together with his brothers Thanasis and Alex, Antetokounmpo led Dwyane Wade’s team to win over Ryan Smith’s Utah Jazz team. DK Metcalf, a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, was crucial in Antetokounmpo’s team to win, and as a result, he was awarded MVP with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Arike Ogunbowale, a guard for the Dallas Wings played for Team Dwyane. Calvin Johnson, a former NFL player, and Albert Pujols, a former MLB player, were among the other renowned players there.

The game and a 3-point shootout between Smith and Wade resulted in a $142,000 donation to the 5 for the Fight charity, which supports cancer research. According to Smith, the Huntsman Cancer Center on the campus of the University of Utah will benefit from the money raised on Friday.

Antetokounmpo, who is only 28 years old, already has an impressive resume that includes an NBA title, MVP of the Finals, two MVPs, Defensive Player of the Year, and seven All-Star appearances. He is currently in his NBA career’s prime years, so over the next five to 10 years, he should add a lot more accomplishments. The Bucks are the second seed in the Eastern Conference with a 41-17 record and are currently on a 12-game winning streak.

For a while now, Antetokounmpo possibly will spend much time on the sidelines, perhaps even as early as Sunday night’s All-Star Game. How do you feel about this veteran player joining as a coach for the NBA? Share your thoughts in the comment with us.
