Historically speaking, the NBA’s Supermax has been a super-flop.
Not this time.
In one stroke of a pen, Giannis Antetokounmpo silenced all of the so-called experts who believed his days in Milwaukee were numbered.
In one stroke of a pen, the collective groan from teams hoping to lure Giannis away from Milwaukee, was heard.
The richest contract in NBA history belongs to Giannis. A 5-year Supermax deal worth roughly $228 million dollars that will go into effect following the upcoming season.
By signing the contract, Giannis is showing immense trust in an organization owning just one NBA championship since becoming a franchise in 1968.
Now it’s time for the Bucks to reward the trust of a generational talent and two-time MVP.
The past two years, every decision made by the Bucks front office was run through the same filter: Will this help us keep Giannis?
The new filter reads: Will this help us win a championship?
The signing of Giannis means there is only one thing left to do: Win the whole damn thing.
