In Today's Talker - Giannis Antetokounmpo is staying in Milwaukee, but it comes after many people speculated about his future with the Bucks.

In August, Giannis told the New York Times that he wouldn't sign an extension with the Bucks if they weren't on the same page about winning a title.

Then in September, the Greek Freak raised eyebrows with similar comments on the "48 Minutes" podcast.

Then later that month, the Bucks traded for superstar Damian Lillard, signaling to Giannis that they were committed to winning another championship.

And finally, on Monday, Giannis signed a three-year, $186 million extension that will keep him with the team for several more years.

That massive extension left a lot of prognosticators with a lot of egg on their face. We rounded up a sampling of just some of the doubters and haters that once again have been proven wrong by the one, the only Giannis Antetokounmpo:
