"I don't like being Hollywood."
Giannis Antetokoumpo has built a name for himself this year by being one of the best players in the NBA. He has led the Milwaukee Bucks to an unlikely first-place finish in the entire league and is looking to bring the team some glory in the playoffs. Antetokoumpo is known for being a hungry, yet humble player who doesn't like to bring too much attention to himself. With this in mind, it's no surprise that he wouldn't want to be in a big budget Hollywood film alongside LeBron James.
In an interview with ESPN's Malika Andrews, the Greek Freak explained that he was asked to be in Space Jam 2 this summer, although it simply isn't for him.
"I don't like being Hollywood," Antetokounmpo said. "I don't like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me."

It's obvious that the Bucks star would rather remain lowkey. He even said at the All-Star game that he'd rather stay in a calm city like Milwaukee then go play in Los Angeles. This is great news for Bucks fans who don't want to see such an incredible player leave.
