Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo says he’s not sure if he could be the same player in a “flashy city” like L.A. or Miami.

In a story by the NYT‘s Marc Stein, Giannis calls himself “low-profile guy.”

Antetokounmpo, in a recent interview, went so far as to assert that where he plays directly influences how he plays.


“I’m a low-profile guy,” he 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.”
