Giannis Antetokounmpo: For as long as I can, I’ll always be in the national team. As long as I’m healthy and as much as I have a say in it, I want to play for Greece. I know that, one day a lot might depend on me for the team to achieve its goals and I already feel that responsibility. I think about the fact that, in ten years from now, there’s a chance that some of my brothers might also be playing in the national team and that seems amazing to me! To be able to say, ‘I’m going off to play for my country,’ and to know that you’ll be playing with members of your family. All of us playing for our country! That’s a big dream.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo: (Anthony Davis) was trying to post me and I was using all of my strength, I didn’t let him. He turns around, shoots off balance and scores. As we were running side-by-side, he says to me: You can’t guard me young fella! As we were running together towards the Bucks’ offense, I process it and think about it. Dude, what are you talking about? You’re only a year older than me! In the next possession he was defending me and I scored that shot where I faked and I let the ball in with the left hand.

It started with a trip to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Jeff Teague just wanted to visit hospitalized children to spread a little cheer last summer. He and the hospital got a whole lot more. The Hawks guard felt compelled to donate $20 for each assist he had the previous season, a sum of $11,260. He felt he could do more. Teague and the hospital set up a program where he would match the figure again this year and challenge others to do the same. Those who matched his $20 per assist total would be All-Star sponsors. Others could give $2 per assist for $1,126 as Teammate sponsors. The money benefits the Hughes Spalding Hospital, according to a hospital spokesperson.

There are plans to continue the program next year – and for years to come. Teague finished last season with 620 assists in the regular season and playoffs combined. He finished 10th in the NBA in regular-season assists with 513 and added 107 more in the postseason. His donation will be $12,400 dollars. He will ask others to match or give $1,260 at $2 per assist. “I just wanted to give back,” Teague said. “I didn’t think it would grow into something like this. It’s a beautiful thing. At first it was just something I wanted to do from my heart. I just wanted to give back. Now, it’s grown into something beautiful and large.”
