Giannis Antetokounmpo picks Doncic, Fournier, Jokic, Embiid and himself for best international five

- by

Serge Ibaka then asked Giannis Antetokounmpo to pick his best starting fives from international players and the United States. International: Luka Doncic, Evan Fournier, Giannis, Nikola Jokic, and Joel Embiid. USA: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Bam Adebayo. “We beat them! Who’s gonna guard Embiid? Adebayo? Okay, that makes sense. Who’s gonna guard Jokic, and who’s gonna guard me?” Giannis talked about the outcome of the imaginary game.

The Spurs held the Bucks to 32 paint points Friday, a new season low for an opp.
MIL made just 41% of paint shots, also new season low in paint accuracy.
No surprise with Giannis out for this game. – 4:00 PM

Jim Owczarski: Giannis Antetokounmpo is probable tonight for the #Bucks vs. the #Hawks. He’s missed three of the last four games with left knee soreness. pic.twitter.com/XYzzybLDR2 -via Twitter @JimOwczarski / November 14, 2022
Greek Freak started the show by talking about his origins and naming the secret behind his surname’s change. Giannis’ real surname is Adetokunbo. “When you take another country’s passport, your name has to be spelled with their alphabet. So, in the D they put NT, and in the B they put MP. It’s pronounced Antetokounmpo in the Greek way, but in the Nigerian way, I know my [sur]name growing up was Adetokunbo,” he explained. -via BasketNews / November 14, 2022
