Many times when all-time greats retire, they like to stay around the game... not Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Speaking on SiriusXM radio, the two-time MVP his plans post-basketball. Saying that he wants to "disappear" once he calls it a career:

When I retire from this game I want to disappear. I want to go somewhere where they're not going to know me... I want to be like Tim Duncan. Where the hell is Tim Duncan?!

NBA Twitter reacted to Giannis' comments on Saturday.

"Line of the season already," one user said.

"He's a comedian lmaooo."

"Who doesn't love this man," another tweeted.

"I love this so much."

"Honestly couldn't have asked to have my heart ripped out and stomped on by a better more earnest dude," a Suns fan replied.

Thankfully we still have many more years to enjoy Giannis on the hardwood.
