Everyone knows he’s one of the best players in the NBA and has definitely earned his two MVP trophies.
However, lately, Antetokounmpo has been showing what a loyal patriot he is as he’s been leading the Greek national basketball team in the EuroBasket tournament.

Antetokounmpo has been on fire in the tournament, again and again reminding the rest of the world and every loyal basketball fan just how special he is.
With just a bit more than a month before the new season, Antetokounmpo looks to be in fine form and ready to once again fight hard to get his team into the playoffs and beyond.
The Reign Of Giannis
Greece advanced to the EuroBasket quarterfinals against host Germany thanks to the hard work of Antetokounmpo.
The Greek Freak had 27 points and 10 rebounds in the determining game against the Czech Republic.
His time playing overseas this summer has only solidified how powerful a player he is.
During the 2021-22 season, Antetokounmpo was putting up 29.9 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 5.8 assists a game.
He was playing his heart out and, at times, carrying his team.
Sadly, it wasn’t enough and the Bucks fell in the playoffs, falling short of their goal to return to the Finals.
They have that same goal for the new season and they have a good chance of achieving it.
Make no mistake: Antetokounmpo has been performing with serious authority during the summer but his real focus is on the season ahead.
