Giannis Unfollows His Team and Teammates on Instagram

The internet was on fire on Saturday, and Giannis Antetokounmpo went on an unfollowing spree. He unfollowed the Bucks and all his teammates on Instagram.

The Bucks were eliminated from the NBA playoffs last week after losing five games in the second round, but the 2019-20 Defensive Player of the Year said he still wants to remain in the organization and will not force his way out.

“Some see a wall and go in another direction. I plow through it. We just have to get better as a team, individually, and get right back at it next season.” Giannis told Yahoo Sports after losing to the Heat.

However, him unfollowing the team and his teammates portray a different picture. These comments seem like a mask in front of the media.

Antetokounmpo allegedly met privately with co-owner Marc Lasry to discuss the future. Giannis is still under one more year contract with Milwaukee, who have no intention of trading him. 

In 1975, they traded Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and they have never made it to the NBA finals ever since. Antetokounmpo is the closest thing they have to Abdul since he left and perhaps the only one they will have in the next several decades. Despite the flaws in the Bucks, having Antetokounmpo makes them contenders in the championships.

What Does Unfollowing His Team and Teammates Mean?

There may be several reasons why the MVP player did what he did with his Instagram account. It could have been hacked, for all we know. Or he’s just taking his time to think about the future in the franchise. 

Others even suggest that it could be a marketing stunt for his Zoom Freak line with Nike seeing as he didn’t unfollow the sports marketing manager at Nike.

Whatever the reason, Bucks fans would still be worried because he said he wouldn’t be moving. The conversation will continue until Giannis pens an extension with Milwaukee. Until then, the Warriors fans can only hope of acquiring the generational star.

Who Does He Still Follow?

Antetokounmpo still follows nine Instagram accounts, including his four brothers, mom, girlfriend, the Antetokounmpo brothers YouTube page, his red Goldendoodle, and Nike’s sports marketing manager Brian Davidson.

Time is still ticking for the Bucks, and even if Giannis professes his loyalty to the Bucks, it only counts if it’s written on paper.

Irish boxer Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will go head to head today, seven years since the duo last fought.

The world anticipated the historic UFC 257 Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier rematch, and now it is here. The duo fought last in 2014, and over the years they have changed.

For instance, Poirier won a couple of fights against boxers like Justin Gaethje, Max Holloway and Eddie Alvarez. Apart from getting some titles, McGregor fought in 2017 with Floyd Mayweather, a match he lost.

There are other anticipated fights like Michael Chandler against Dan Hooker. Michael is after the title because he wants to add it to his wins while for Hooker, this could be a chance to redeem himself after losing to Poirier last year.

In the women’s battle, Amanda Ribas will be taking down Marina Rodriguez. Joanne Calderwood and Jessica Eye will compete for the Women’s Flyweight title while Makhmud Muradov will battle against Andrew Sanchez for the middleweight championship.

Like boxer Khabib Nurmagomedov, many fans are predicting that McGregor will take the win, but we can not be so sure as Poirier has been working and preparing hard for the fight. Besides, Conor has not fought for the last one year. It sure will be contested.

McGregor is reported to earn more than twenty million dollars from the Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier fight.
