Giannis Antetokounmpo recently made an interesting remark about his future with the Milwaukee Bucks. However, it's possible that his words were actually misquoted.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinelpassed along a Harvard case study that featured quotes from Antetokounmpo. He reportedly said "But if we’re (the Bucks) underperforming in the NBA next year, deciding whether to sign becomes a lot more difficult."

Fans around the league were immediately stunned when reading those remarks. Prior to this story coming out, many people assumed Antetokounmpo would remain with Milwaukee for life.

With the regular season underway, Antetokounmpo came out publicly to deny this report.

Antetokounmpo went as far as to say he's "never used those words in my life."

That should help ease the minds of Bucks fans for the next few months.

Milwaukee made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season. If it weren't for an epic run by Kawhi Leonard, the Bucks may have made the NBA Finals.

The Bucks did lose Malcolm Brogdon this offseason, but the team has more than enough talent to make another deep run in the playoffs.

Since Antetokounmpo has two years remaining on his contract, the Bucks will likely deal with constant rumors involving his future for a while.
