Giannis Antetokounmpo plays pick-up game in Greece

Wednesday May 13th, 2015

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and his brother Thanasis, a 2014 second round pick of the New York Knicks, returned to their old Greek stomping grounds to dominate a pick-up game, as chronicled by the Bucks' official web site.

The Antetokounmpos grew up in the Sepolia neighborhood of Athens playing on local courts. Now, Giannis is a rising NBA star, having averaged 12.7 points and 6.7 rebounds this season at age 20, and Thanasis is a budding prospect, averaging 13.9 points this year for the D-League's Westchester Knicks.

The players seem to have outgrown their once-home courts, as both Antetokounmpos' social media accounts filled up with images and videos of them dunking over ordinary players.

This tweet lets everyone know to meet the duo at 7 p.m. on the courts in Sepolia.

And here's big-brother Thanasis showing that there's more than one Antetokounmpo with hops.
