Giannis Antetokounmpo has been one of the best players to enter the NBA in recent memory. The two-time and reigning MVP has been a breath of fresh air, showing that proper franchise development can help create superstars. Giannis is a beast on the court, both offensively and defensively, and the current defensive player of the year shared a touching moment with his brothers recently.
Giannis Antetokounmpo shares a touching moment with his brothers
Giannis Antetokounmpo was seen after the Milwaukee Bucks‘ win over the Lakers with his brothers. His brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, is his teammate, and Kostas is a Los Angeles Lakers player. The trio was together after and shared the court with each other for a brief period. Giannis revealed what the moment meant to him after the game.
Giannis said, “This moment today is probably my favorite moment I’ve had so far in the NBA. You can never have a feeling like this, no matter what you do. You win a game with a buzzer-beater, you score 50, you score 40 — like, it does not frickin’ matter. This moment, just seeing the guys that I grew up with, and we slept in the same bed.”
The Antetokounmpo brothers have made it to the big leagues
Giannis added that he and his brothers spent their childhood together, wondering what their lives would be like. All three brothers shared a common dream – to play in the NBA. Giannis added that his mother was at the arena, capturing the wonderful moment between the three brothers, and he reiterated that this moment was the best any of the three brothers have had since entering the NBA.
Giannis said, “We were looking at the ceiling and imagining if we were ever going to play in the NBA, if we were ever going to make it and just being on the same court while our mom is having her phone and videotaping the whole thing — I think it’s priceless, and nobody can take this away from us. I think this is the best moment we’ve ever had in the NBA.”
Will Giannis be on the same team with both his brothers one day? He currently has Thanasis as a teammate in Milwaukee. However, Kostas looks extremely happy with the Lakers. Kostas, much to the surprise of everyone, is the only brother between the two to be an NBA champion. But sharing a team with his brothers must be a dream that Kostas will be looking to fulfill.
