Giannis tweets he will not leave until Bucks are championship caliber team

By Matt Trebby. CREATED Jul 16, 2014

Giannis Antetokounmpo hasn't had the smoothest start to his NBA career in the wins and losses columns.

After winning just 15 games last season, the Bucks failed to win a game at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He made the comment a couple days ago that he hasn't won a game in four months. A harsh bit of reality for a rookie.

Antetokounmpo has always been a breath of fresh air with his energy and enthusiasm on the court and off the bench.

He likely increased his popularity with a couple of tweets on Wednesday night:

Antetokounmpo and the Bucks are likely a couple of years away from contending as he would like them to, but that type of commitment and enthusiasm is refreshing for a franchise that hasn't done much over the past decade.
