Giannis on Davis: ‘I’d focus on just playing basketball’

Giannis Antetokounmpo says he would not be following Anthony Davis' lead were he in the shoes of Davis.

Were he in the shoes of Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo would be the exact opposite, he says.

The Milwaukee Bucks star said he would “focus on just playing basketball” as opposed to feeding the narrative, first set Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, who informed the New Orleans Pelicans that Davis would not sign a contract extension and wanted to be traded.

“If I was Anthony Davis, and I was in his position, I would not talk about free agency,” Antetokounmpo told Rachel Nichols of ESPN.

“I’d focus on just playing basketball. I think he got a lot into talking and thinking about it and letting people say their opinion,” Antetokounmpo said.

“Obviously, he can do whatever he wants.”
