Giannis Antetokounmpo: I'm so hungry to accomplish more

- by

Giannis Antetokounmpo still plays the game and lives life with child-like joy. Yet the calendar doesn’t lie, this season will be 10 years in the league. “I’m an old soul, Antetokounmpo told NBC Sports. “Like, in my mind I feel like I’ve been a vet five years now. But like my body… I have so much energy. I’m so hungry to accomplish more. I want to go out there and help you know my team in the best way possible. And a lot of people know that I’m a winner. I love to win. I love to go out there and leave everything on the court. But definitely I agree with you that people don’t think I’ve been 10 years in the league and they see me as kind of the young guy. You know the new guy on the block but it’s okay, you know, but at the end of the day, I won’t go out there and do the best job possible and try to win games.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t play vs Spain at WiZink Center, Madrid. But he was on the bench for his teammates and approached the game with the same passion as when he plays. He will be ready for the Acropolis Tournament, as tone-setter for Greece. #HellasBasketball #FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/yyYcuNpSjK5:07 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo is not only one of the best players in the world right now, if not the best. He is also a huge asset for the Greek basketball as a whole, on & off the court. The Federation is expected to have around 1Μ€ earnings from tickets in Greece NT games this month. pic.twitter.com/Cg5kR1BUaW2:46 PM

For a limited time, “Rise” will stream on Hulu and ESPN+, marking the movie’s availability across all three services of The Disney Bundle. Starting August 18, Hulu and ESPN+ subscribers can watch the Disney+ Original based on the triumphant real-life story about the remarkable family that gave the world the first trio of brothers to become NBA champions in the history of the league – Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and former Los Angeles Laker Kostas Antetokounmpo, and their younger brother Alex. -via Disney Media & Entertainment / August 11, 2022
In a sold-out WiZink center in Madrid and with Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer in attendance, Greece missed Giannis Antetokounmpo who was rested, and Spain got the 87-80 win behind a huge double-double by Pelicans’ Willy Hernangomez (23 p. 10 r.). His brother, Juancho Hernangomez added 10 points and eight rebounds, while veteran leader Sergio Llull who missed the first game between the two teams stepped on the court and scored six points. -via EuroHoops.net / August 11, 2022
