Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo tears up reporter’s verdict pointing out “Michael Jordan played 15 years, won 6 championships the other 9 years was a failure!”

Giannis Antetokounmpo was not happy with a journalist who asked him if he would label the Milwaukee Bucks’ season as a failure. The Bucks were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Miami Heat despite finishing top of the NBA’s Eastern Conference with a 58-24 record.

During a press conference, Giannis responded to the journalist by asking whether he gets a promotion every year in his job. He explained that every year they work towards something, which is not a failure, but rather steps towards success.

Giannis went on to use Michael Jordan as an example, pointing out that he played 15 years and won six championships, but the other nine years were not failures.

Giannis was confident that the Bucks will bounce back next year and compete for the title again. He apologized for making it personal with the journalist, saying that he was not in the right mindset to answer the same question last year.

The eighth seed of a conference, Miami, managed to eliminate the top seed, Milwaukee, for the sixth time in NBA playoff history. Giannis recorded 38 points and 20 rebounds for the Bucks, but they squandered a +16 lead in the fourth quarter and ended up losing 128-126 in overtime.

Giannis’ response to the journalist shows his determination to succeed and his refusal to label their season as a failure. He believes that every year is a step towards success, and that setbacks are part of the process.

The Bucks’ early exit from the playoffs will undoubtedly fuel their desire to come back stronger next year and achieve their goal of winning the championship.

Bucks Coach Budenholzer Diplomatic, While Giannis Antetokounmpo Objects to “Failure” Label

After a stunning exit from the 2023 NBA Playoffs by the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks’ head coach Mike Budenholzer responded diplomatically to a reporter’s question about whether the team’s season was a “failure.”

While acknowledging the team’s high expectations, Budenholzer also praised the roster centered around star player Giannis Antetokounmpo, expressing disappointment, frustration, and hurt over the loss but emphasizing the team’s belief in their ability to succeed.

In contrast, Giannis Antetokounmpo did not take kindly to the reporter’s question, objecting to the label of “failure” for his team. In Game 6, Antetokounmpo scored an impressive 38 points and 20 rebounds, but missed several crucial free throws that may have cost his team the game.

Despite the meltdown suffered by the Bucks, there is no denying the talent and potential of the team. In retrospect, the Bucks may have had a better chance of surviving the series if they had set a stronger tone by winning the opener. However, the Bucks will now have to reflect and regroup during the long offseason ahead of them.
