Giannis Antetokounmpo has the brightest future in the NBA. The Bucks got fined for just stating the obvious: They’ll offer him a super-max contract as soon as he’s eligible. If he nods in the direction of any other teams, they’ll do all they can to pursue him in 2021 free agency.

That’s why Antetokounmpo can so comfortably joke about his biggest flaw – outside shooting.

The Bucks and Timberwolves tipped off nearly an hour late last night because a rim in Minnesota was crooked.

Eric Nehm of The Athletic:

It’s nice to see Antetokounmpo enjoying himself. (A 134-106 win over the Timberwolves certainly helped.) This could be a long regular season for the Bucks.

It’s easy to just bide time until seeing how they perform in the playoffs.
