In a recent interview, Giannis Antetokounmpo talked about his plans after retiring from the NBA. Giannis said that after retirement he wants to live a quiet life like Tim Duncan. He elaborated by recalling a tri he’d taken to Sweden 2 years ago and he was pleasantly shocked that nobody recognized him.

When people in Sweden saw Giannis they’d walk past without taking notice of him. This enabled him to move around more freely and enjoy the experience.

He elaborated by saying that he wants to play the game and when he retires he wants people to forget him. The aim is to disappear and live a quiet retired life.

As long as Giannis continues playing the way he is right now for a few more years he will make the Hall Of Fame. He is a two-time MVP and has won a championship as well. These things coupled with his other achievements will likely earn him a place in the Hall.
