Shaun Livingston clearly signed with the right team, as the Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals to be crowned champions in his first year with Golden State. “I don’t think anybody expected what came about, especially that first year,” Livingston said Tuesday on 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast.” “Winning the championship our first year out there — well my first year — in ’14-15 and really getting that notch in our belt, it really changed all of our lives, our careers, our trajectories. Any time you go through a championship run or playoff run or spend years together with anybody, the relationships that are forged and built … I think you talk about a brotherhood that’s kind of been built through that run. That’s the things we kind of look back on.”

NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo was in Greece for a meeting with the country’s prime minister Thursday and a special ceremony to bestow Greek citizenship on his mother Veronica and younger brother Alex. Antetokounmpo, who led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA championship in July, attended the ceremony at the official residence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, the son of Nigerian immigrants. He was granted Greek citizenship in 2013, allowing him to travel to the United States and join the Bucks later that year.
“We always felt Greek, but now we have an official stamp and we are happy,” Antetokounmpo told reporters after the ceremony. “Alex and my mom are Greek citizens now.” Antetokounmpo also traveled to Greece in August with his brother Thanassis, carrying the Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy. He took the trophy to the ancient Acropolis in Athens to celebrate with members of his family.
