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.
The Greek national team will have 23 players available on the preliminary roster for the 2022 EuroBasket and 2023 World Cup Qualifiers, per the Greek Basketball Federation. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a two-time NBA MVP and 2021 champion with the Milwaukee Bucks, is officially confirmed to make his return to the national team after the 2019 World Cup. His brothers Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Kostas Antetokounmpo and Alex Antetokounmpo are also named to the roster.
ALEX ANTETOKOUNMPO THOUGHT he’d had a good game. The senior forward for Dominican High School and youngest of the four basketball-playing Antetokounmpo brothers had posted 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists in a 20-point victory over Mequon Homestead High School on Dec. 7. His older brother Giannis had other ideas. The NBA’s reigning MVP was fresh off his own 27-point, 11-rebound, 4-assist game in a rout of the LA Clippers on his 25th birthday. He typically darts out of Alex’s high school games quickly to avoid being hounded by fans, but after this performance, he stuck around to share some blunt feedback. Afterward, Alex fired off a text to his coach, Jim Gosz. “You’ll see a different Alex,” it read.
For the brothers, success isn’t measured in wins and losses, even though Giannis, Thanasis and Kostas play for the two winningest teams in the NBA this season. Living up to their father’s legacy remains the primary goal. From the oldest brother, Francis, a retired soccer player who makes his home in Greece, to Alex, a high school senior in suburban Milwaukee with the bright basketball future, that means supporting and leading one another to greater success. “It’s the biggest thing that we’ve got to worry about,” Alex said. “If we have one goal to fulfill in life, it’s that.”
Garland, who will play with Allen in Sunday’s All-Star Game, put on his own shooting display throughout the competition. He made a clutch 3-pointer to win a tiebreaker over the brothers team of Giannis, Thanasis and Alex Antetokounmpo to reach the championship round. But he was more impressed with his rookie teammate’s performance. “He’s a unicorn; 7-footer who is 20 years old that can do everything,” Garland said. “I’m glad to play with him and have him on my team.” Said Allen: “He’s one of a kind. Defense, offense and now half court.”
