He's not just getting the big money, he is an exceptional player for Milwaukee bucks. he recently was voted captain in the all star games last month and is in a two way battle with James harden for this season's regular season MVP. He's a joy to watch

He's Greek, Nigerians shouldn't stake a claim of this basketball prodigy. He was born and raised in Greece, schooled in Greece, given the opportunity to play in their 3rd division basketball before being discovered by an NBA scout. Nigeria did nothing to develop his talent and had it been he grew up in Nigeria, he might've ended up a motor park taut. Every single member of his family played sports or are playing sports. His late father was a former football player. His mother is a former Olympian. His eldest brother plays soccer in Europe. His other 3 brothers are playing highschool or college basketball in the U.S. But what's even more amazing is the fact that his youngest brother who's only 14yrs old and 6'9 tall will be taller and better than Giannis. It's mind boggling to think that someone in the Antetokounmpo family will be better than Giannis. Had it been young Rashidi Yekini was raised overseas and went to a football academy, he might've been the next Maradona, his stunning goal in the 1994 worldcup proved that he was a raw talent that needed refining.

Okaaay?

SO how does all that dismiss his origin?
Ever heard of German Turks or British Indians before?

That name sha... the passport officer MURDERED it

The spelling was not a mistake. It was intentional and official.
Few years ago, he was selling CD/DVDs around Athens.

He is well respected in Athens and the whole of Greece and would probably represent them in any major tournament.
