Breathe easy, Milwaukee Bucks fans. Giannis Antetokounmpo has no plans to pull a LeBron James. Ever. Apparently.
Asked about LeBron’s decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers on a recent appearance of The Herd, Antetokounmpo mostly demurred. He complemented James and showed respect for his decision. Pressed about whether he would ever do the same, though, incited a more definitive response:

Here’s a transcription of what Antetokounmpo said, per Bleacher Report’s Tyler Conway:
“To be honest with you, no, no way,” Antetokounmpo said when asked whether he would leave for the Lakers. “I like finishing the stuff that I have with Milwaukee. My goal is to win in Milwaukee, bring a championship to the city. … I would never leave for L.A.”
