Giannis Antetokounmpo believes playing in one of the NBA's smaller markets has helped him become a better player.

“I’m a low-profile guy,” Antetokounmpo said. “I don’t like all these flashy cities like L.A. or Miami. I don’t know if I could be the same player if I played in those cities.”

Antetokounmpo can become a free agent in 2021 when his four-year, $100 million extension expires.

“I got loyalty inside my DNA,” wrote Antetokounmpo on Twitter in July.

Antetokounmpo father, Charles Antetokounmpo, passed away in September at the age of 54. Antetokounmpo has been leaning even further on his adopted hometown of Milwaukee since.
