Giannis Antetokounmpo says his 15-year-old brother Alex is going to be better than him
Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the best young players in the NBA. The Greek Freak is 22, he just started the all-star game and he does ridiculous things like this pretty often.
But if you take him for his word, he's not even the best basketball player in his family. TMZ caught up with Giannis at All–Star Weekend and asked him about his 15-year-old brother Alex, who is 6'3''. Giannis said "he will be better than me."
Perhaps the older Antetokounmpo was just saying this to be nice—he was with Alex, after all—but if he's being serious, this is very scary.
Alex isn't the only basketball-playing Antetokounmpo brother. Giannis's older brother, Thanasis, was drafted by the Knicks and now plays professionally for MoraBanc Andorra in the Spanish Liga ACB. The fourth brother, Kostas, is a 6'10'' freshman who plays for Dayton.
