Giannis Antetokounmpo evolves with his big brother Thanasis in the Milwaukee franchise. The two Greeks faced their little brother Kostas, this Thursday, during the victory of the Bucks in the room of the Lakers (97-117). Before joking together in the middle of the floor.
This is the image of the day in the NBA. And she is quite fascinating. The game between the Lakers and the Bucks gave rise this Thursday to a particularly moving reunion between the Antetokounmpo brothers. Three colossi, born in Athens five years apart, who all play in the NBA. Giannis (26) and Thanasis (28) wear the Milwaukee jersey, while Kostas (23) plays for Los Angeles. At the end of the match, the Greek trio met in the middle of the floor of the Staples Center. By sleeping a little, before falling into the arms for a family hug, which made the cameras happy. It’s hard to imagine the emotion of Antetokounmpo parents in front of their television.
As for the field, it was the Bucks who won among the defending champions (97-117). Giannis, the star of the siblings, double reigning MVP, finished second in the game with 25 points, with 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Thanasis scored 8 points and took 1 rebound. Opposite, the young Kostas was only entitled to 2 minutes of play, without unlocking his stats line. This success in the City of Angels places Milwaukee in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, behind Brooklyn and Philadelphia. The Lakers are 4th in the West.
The Holiday brothers had done it two years ago
The case of the Antetokounmpo is not a first in the history of the NBA. Two years ago, the three Holiday brothers had already played a game together. It was during a Denver-New Orleans. Aaron and Justin played for the Pacers and Jrue for the Pelicans. Ironically, the same Jrue Holiday, who now wears the Milwaukee jersey, finished top scorer on Thursday against the Lakers (28). In front of Giannis and his brothers.
