On one hand, one could look at this season as a culmination of a three-year professional journey. But for Kalaitzakis, it’s one that’s just beginning. “He’s one of those kids who has kind of been under the radar a little bit, as in globally under the radar,” said Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who played with Kalaitzakis in Greece for two seasons. “In Greece he’s a big talent and great potential. He works really hard, he works extremely hard. He has, I think, great basketball IQ for his age and he just keeps getting better every day.
Despite their extended pre-game embraces, Giannis had already been spending less time with his brother before Thanasis’ diagnosis, says the second NBA official: “He was just kind of like this extra voice in his head that he didn’t really need.” The MVP doesn’t like going to team dinners. He’d received private attention from the team’s medical staff, avoiding further close contact with the infected. He returned another negative test. Only his brother and six staffers tested positive within the NBA Finals inner sanctum. “There was no outbreak,” the league’s Covid czar claims.
Jim Owczarski: George Hill is still going to start for the #Bucks, even as Jrue Holiday is expected to play. Hill joins Thanasis Antetokounmpo and Pat Connaughton again with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Grayson Allen. Sandro Mamukelashvili will not be active.

Real-life brothers Uche Agada and Ral Agada will play young Giannis and Thanasis, with Jaden Osimuwa and Elijah Shomanke as their other brothers, Kostas and Alex, respectively. Dayo Okeniyi (“Emperor,” “Shades of Blue”) and Yetide Badaki (“American Gods,” “This is Us”) play their parents Charles and Vera. Among the other characters mentioned in Disney’s announcement, John Hammond, the Bucks general manager who drafted Giannis, will be played by Taylor Nichols (“PEN15,” “Perry Mason”).
