Bucks GM Gets Fined for Publicly Soothing Fan Anxiety about the Greek Freak
You really can't blame the MIlwaukee Bucks for being super-paranoid about the status of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
While he stills belongs to Milwaukee, every single rumor pertaining to his possible departure sends Bucks fans scrambling for the anti-depressants.
Knowing this all to well, GM Jon Horst recently attempted to assuage the fears of the freaked out deer enthusiasts:

So after saying he wasn't allowed to discuss the Giannis situation, Horst immediately discussed the Giannis situation.
Of course, the Association has a rather large bug up its ass regarding this sort of thing these days:

At this point, it's impossible to predict where the Freak will be plying his trade next season.
Obviously, this won't prevent folks from speculating wildly:

It might be prudent to pare down that list just a tad.
