You can see the pain, you can't hate Yorubas. No matter how you love your tribe, you will always see a tribe far better than your tribe.

Nigerian basketball star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, has been listed as one of the highest paid NBA players of 2018 by Forbes Magazine. The 24-year-old Nigerian basketball star who was listed as one of the highest paid NBA players of 2018, made $35.5million last year. Giannis Antetokounmpo a.k.a “the Greek Freak”, first talked about his home country, Nigeria for the first time in a 2019 interview with a sports website called The Undefeated. 

His Nigerian side is reflected on his Twitter bio and he also about getting his Nigerian passport in 2015.The NBA star was born on December 6, 1994, in Athens, Greece to Nigerian parents, Charles and Veronica Adetokunbo. He was born three years after his parents moved to the European country. His name was originally Adetokunbo, but it became Antetokounmpo after a misspelling in his Greek passport. 

Forbes revealed that his earnings went nearly 500% up in 2018 due to a new $100 million deal with the Bucks, as well as a Nike contract extension. His previous Nike deal paid roughly $20,000 annually, while his new pact will pay an estimated $9 million in the first year with more to come when Nike releases Antetokounmpo's first signature shoe in 2019. He also has deals with BMO Harris, Tissot, Kronos Foods and several more in his native Greece. The Greek Freak has increased his annual scoring average by at least four points per game each of his five-year career. He averaged a career-high 27 points during the 2017-18 season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a Greek professional basketball player of Nigerian descent. This boy never claimed Naija. He visited Nigeria for the first time in 2015 when the father was still alive. According to him he said he is from Greece. He also let people know that his parents are from Nigeria. The first time he played in Philadelphia the Greek community were there to welcome him. This guy is only surrounded by the Greeks

Like for bbal share for soccer



Inside bbal and soccer which one dey pay pass sef

To the dude ontop of me Na so you wan sell out your sister for money smh undecided
inside bball and soccer which one dey pay pass sef??



Bros basketball is the bomb!!!NBA(american basketball league) pays more than soccer. But you know a lot of Nigerians are ignorant,dem no know pass chelsea,arsenal and man city. No super eagles player earn as much as antetokoumpo-milwaukee or even Victor oladipo-indiana pacers. Victor oladipo also has a heavy shoe endorsement deal with Jordan sneakers.
Another rich bball player with naija root is Andre iguodala(golden state warriors).


My only regret is that I allowed myself to be influenced by parents decision to drop basketball when I was younger,i was a good shooting guard,even played for my school at some Nuga games then.i will never allow anybody to influence my kids from going all out to achieve their athletics dream. Naija parents/guardians be killing Dem wards aspirations since the days of Nebuchadnezzar.

Only people with improper education assume that humans are gay if they try to protect gay people in anyway.
