For Toronto Raptors fans on Tuesday, it was the news they never wanted to hear.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has decided to stay with the Milwakuee Bucks, signing a five-year extension reportedly worth $228.2 million. The Super Max contract is the largest in NBA history.

The extension also means that Antetokounmpo will no longer hit the free agent market in 2021, dashing the hopes and dreams of Raptors fans who imagined the all-star possibly making the move to Toronto.

On social media after Tuesday’s announcement, there was a mix of emotions from Raptors fans including disappointment, frustration and also optimism about other moves the Raptors could make in next year’s free agent market.
