(SP) – Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo says he is enjoying his latest trip to the postseason and is considering releasing his full arsenal of superpowers, but may decide to wait to do so in a later season.
“I’m kind of enjoying playing right now as basically a regular human. It’s more challenging for me,” he said. “We’re tied in the series with the Raptors and it’s a lot of fun. Good we close it out quickly if I unveiled flight? Sure. But I’m not sure it will be necessary.”
The 6-foot-11, 22-year old Greek star would not disclose all of his powers, but did say that there are more than two dozen, hinting that flight, invisibility, super-strength and mind control are among them.
“I’m a team player and I’m not just going to go out there and score 500 points and win 500-0 by myself,” he said. “My teammates work hard and deserve to be involved in the game. It’s neat to see how well they can do despite not being gifted like I am. It’s inspiring to me. And if I win a title this year, I could get bored. I’d have to go take over some other sport, I guess.”
Since Antetokounmpo has a good 15 years left in his NBA career, or “infinity years if I want to since I’m immortal,” he said he plans to bide his time.
“I just want to play and have fun for now,” he said. “Also, I’d appreciate no more questions on this topic,” he added, his eyes shooting lasers at reporters as a warning.
