The “Antetokounbros” gave a show in front of the Venetian castle in Heraklion, during the first out of the three events that will take place during their small tour in Greece! Eurohoops co-organized the whole event, along with the region of Crete and the municipality of Heraklion. Hence, we give you a good taste, through pictures and videos, of what transpired in this fantastic basketball party.
The crowd packed the harbor of Heraklion for the event. When they were asked why do they believe that people loves them so much, Giannis and Thanasis answered: “We are guys who used to have a hard life. We are authentic. Our family has strong bonds and we love each other very much. That’s what people likes about us because they understand that it is authentic”. In the end, they commented about the even: “We are very happy. We had such a good time in Crete. We will be coming in Crete during the upcoming years, that’s for sure. Today’s event was just the beginning. Greater things are ahead in the two upcoming events, as well as in the following years”.
Antetokounmpo will earn $3 million next season in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, but it’s no secret that he’ll be in line for a massive raise in the 17/18 season. The Bucks can offer him an extension of up to five years starting in July, and based on this week’s revised 17/18 cap projection of $107 million, Giannis could earn a first year max salary of up to $25 million. With max raises of 7.5% of the first year salary, a five-year deal from the Bucks could be worth approximately $144 million, thus locking in the Bucks’ young star as early as July. Otherwise Giannis would become a restricted free agent in the summer of 2017, where the Bucks would have matching rights and other teams could offer up to four years, 4.5% raises and a total package of around $107 million.
On if he’s focusing on shooting more threes in the summer: Giannis Antetokounmpo: “Definitely. That’s the goal. I thought at the start of this year, I would be more comfortable shooting the three, but at the end of the year, I started to get more comfortable. So next year, I think I will be shooting the three without hesitating.” Q: How do you get better at it? Are there specific exercises? “Just shoot. Shoot all day. Try to make as many shots as you can. If you practice, they will go in. It can only get better.”
