Giannis Antetokounmpo has ruled out a future move to the Lakers or Clippers and his reason for ruling out a move to these teams is hilarious. According to him, the city of Los Angeles is expensive. Giannis is filthy rich but he obviously doesn’t like expensive cities.

Hilariously, the reason for it is how expensive the city of LA is. TMZ posted a video of Giannis and his family leaving Catch in West Hollywood. While talking to them, he admitted that the food was good yet expensive. He quoted.
“Expensive, expensive,” he added. “This city’s not for me”.
The Bucks star has had his moments with food in public. Last year, he celebrated winning his championship by visiting Chic-a-flic. He placed a special order of 50 chicken nuggets while having trophies by his side and did all this on an Instagram live.
While Giannis is insanely rich, he would surely prefer an economical Chic-a-flic meal over an expensive restaurant dinner. He is not a flashy superstar who would like to show people how rich he is, rather, he sometimes turns shy when people bring up his insane wealth.
The city of Milwaukee loves Giannis and Giannis love Milwaukee. The last season’s champions have shown a great on-court chemistry and we don’t see Giannis leaving the team anytime soon.
It is also clear by his action that he is the kind of superstar who would prefer the Midwest over a bigger market such as LA. Economical food might be one reason why the star prefers to stay in Wisconsin, but that is not all. The management has built a championship-winning team and he would not be eager to leave that soon.
This year’s bucks journey has ended after losing to Boston in Eastern Conference Semi-finals. They would surely want to bounce back next season and come back stronger. It would be exciting to see if anyone leaves the team or would they all stick together.
