Giannis Antetokounmpo: My mind should be focused on basketball but it’s not possible for it not to wander back to Greece. Even if you don’t want to think about it, the events won’t let you. I’m young and inexperienced to talk about these kinds of issues. I don’t possess the knowledge to judge and have an opinion. The only thing I’m entitled to share is my feelings. I feel sorrow for Greece and everything the people are going through. I know how hard it is. Honestly, for many years in my life, before I became 18 and got into the draft and the NBA, I felt first hand the stresses of survival. The insecurity, the feeling of not knowing what tomorrow will bring and how you will manage to survive.
Giannis Antetokounmpo: It’s a very difficult situation to manage. I want to wish the people strength, courage, a positive mentality and patience. Personally, I managed to come out stronger from the difficult situations I experienced in my childhood and teenage years, with only one thing as a weapon: my love for my family, the emotional bond that we had between us, the fact that we were all going through it together, by giving strength to one another. When you have people by your side that love you, people you care about, and everyone supports each other, then even the greatest problems, if they cannot be overcome, they can at least be endured. It has been proven many times in history that no matter what Greece went through, Greece never perished. Greece always found a way to get up again and move forward. The same will happen now.
