The clock is ticking on Giannis and Milwaukee

Having been bounced in the first round for the third time in his young post season career, you can't help but feel Giannis may be getting tired of losing. Despite not being able to be a free agent until the end of the 2020-2021 season, the clock has already started to tick.

Bucks fans will quickly point me to the fact Giannis loves the small(er) city and the low key ease of Milwaukee, in fact he himself said it. Giannis has also said he couldn't really see himself in a huge media city like LA, I'm sure New York would also fall under that umbrella. While the city itself may not be as warming as Milwaukee is for Giannis, the desire to win is most likely greater.

In Milwaukee — I love Milwaukee — it's low-key. I can walk down the road, down the streets without anybody bugging me — nobody interrupts my conversation or anything. I love how quiet and calm Milwaukee is.

The Bucks fired head coach Jason Kidd this year and while interim coach Joe Prunty did a fine job, he's not expected to be the head coach moving forward. Whoever ends up coaching the Bucks next needs to gel with Giannis, the franchise center piece, and move the Bucks from “pretenders” to “contenders” quickly. The front office and head coaching position can't be a continual carousel if the team plans to win or even keep Giannis. Milwaukee also needs to find ways to improve their roster, especially seeing how they're already over the projected salary cap for next season.

This summer may very well be the summer that dictates the tenure of Giannis in Milwaukee. With another first round exit, the pending free agency of Jabari Parker, the so-so result of Eric Bledsoe, and another coach coming in, there doesn't seem to be a coherent organization behind Giannis just yet. The clock is ticking and while it may not seem loud at the moment, the summer of 2021is not far away.
