In their old Athens neighborhood of Sepolia Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo played once again a pick up basketball game in the open gym of Triton, where they learned the sport. Dozens of local residents gathered around them and also had the chance to play with them, like their old friends and teammates Sokratis Psaropoulos and Kanelos Garbis. After the game which was announced by the brothers themselves via social media, Giannis said: “I want to thank every one and all the kids who came to see us. We will try to do it every year in order to have fun with out friends and remember old times. I will always miss my neighborhood. Two days after the playoffs I am back here. That says everything”.
