Tzikas remembers times when the Antetokounmpo brothers were not welcome on the neighborhood courts. Most of the time, Tzikas said, the boys’ father took them to the courts and the kids were protected from violence. Besides helping find the boys’ parents jobs, Zivas said the general manager for Filathlitikos gave the family money to underscore the club’s commitment. The family eventually moved into a better neighborhood, closer to where the club was located. Once settled, Giannis prospered. “He was a leader in the youth team and quickly made it to the seniors,” Zivas recalls. “He was the team worker. The team expected him to rebound, block. (Scoring) points did not interest him.”
