That Disney+ movie about Milwaukee Bucks star and NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, his family and their story finally has a title. "Rise," described by Disney as the story of "how one family's vision, determination and faith lifted them out of obscurity to launch the career of three NBA champions," will premiere on the streaming service sometime in 2022. When it was announced in 2019, the project went under the title "Greek Freak."
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").

Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't rule out playing for the Bulls in the future

Fox 32 Chicago Sports: Giannis on playing for the #Bulls someday tonight on The Sports Zone on Fox 32 Chicago. @fox32news @foxkickoff @LouCanellis @CassieCarlsonTV @Giannis_An34

“I think anyone asked that question who plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar. It’s a team that won multiple championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now, I’m committed to Milwaukee.”

Lakers to open season vs. Warriors

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is unbeaten in seven games against the Lakers since taking over two seasons ago, while it will be Lakers coach Darvin Ham’s first meeting of arena tenants since his hiring in May. The game will be the Clippers’ season opener, while the Lakers will open two days earlier, on Oct. 18, at defending champion Golden State, according to a person with knowledge of the schedule.
On Sunday, Durant sent a tweet hinting that he’s going to delete his account on the platform amid the talks that it is ruining his legacy. However, he has since deleted the post. What’s interesting is Kevin Durant sent it out after people kept criticizing him for being the culprit in the current state of the player empowerment era in the NBA. A lot of players seem to be abusing that power to get out of situations they don’t like despite signing their contracts and teams paying them tons of money.
