Levels of Freakouts for Bucks Fans of Giannis Unfollowing Everyone on Instagram
NBA Twitter does not take days off. They’re weirdly obsessive with everyone. They love drama more than the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Team Brandy for those wondering). Today, it was reported that Giannis Antetokounmpo has unfollowed all the Bucks players and team staff on Instagram. Should we freak out about this? Some would say yes. Others would say no. Some also might say maybe. Let’s help out Bucks fans and find out what level of freakout you’re at right now. These levels will be on an upward scale just like a hurricane.
LEVEL 1: More Locked in Giannis coming, you guys – Giannis is pissed off and he is basically shutting down his social media. He thought there was too much outside noise and wants to become an even better player next season. He is working his ass off on having a mid-range game and a three-point shot. Everything is fine. Giannis wants to become even more of a badass motherfucker.
LEVEL 2: Everything is alright, I think? But maybe he hates his team? – From all accounts, it seemed like Giannis had a good relationship with his teammates. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe are both good friends. He works out with Pat Connaughton. George Hill and him seem tight. But maybe, he is sick of them considering the last two years of disappointment? And wants to see some real change this offseason, so this is a message to Bucks’ general manager Jon Horst.
LEVEL 3: Yeah, this might be a thing, but I’m not ready to push the panic button – This might be the prelude to more news coming out about Giannis being unhappy. If you are at this level, it’s important to consider the source. Shams seems to be dialed in with the Bucks. Brian Windhorst had some Bucks’ nuggets in the past. Same with Woj. But if you’re hearing from others dudes like Chris Mannix, Marc Stein, I don’t know how much weight I would put on it.
LEVEL 4: We’re completely fucked, and he wants out before next year – That would be an overreaction, but I know how Bucks Twitter and Reddit do their thing so, it would not surprise me if some people are on this level. But there would have to be something seismic that happened for us to get to this point.
Where is SnotapWI at? – I’m like a level 1-2 if that makes sense. Think this is part of him locking in. And also, I do think there are parts of his team he wants to see fixed. I don’t think this is anything to go crazy about, but it would not surprise me if more stuff comes out next week. It’s important to trust the source though.
