Despite playing in a smallish basketball city, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has made a name for himself as one of the best players in the game. He’s an absolute freak of nature and one of the most physically gifted players we’ve ever seen take to the NBA hardwood.
As fans continue to enjoy what the Greek Freak does on the court, we will soon see another Antetokounmpo join the NBA ranks.
According to this one report, Giannis’ younger brother, Kostas Antetokounmpo, will declare for the 2018 NBA Draft.

Kostas played for Dayton this season, averaging 5.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in just north of 15 minutes of action per game. Despite his rather pedestrian stats, the youngster is seen by some in the NBA circles as more talented than his famous older brother.
I had a scout tell me Kostas might be better than his brothers, and in a related story, I can confirm that scouts don't know everything. https://t.co/QeYdqkfMyF

So this isn’t simply about his last name. Kostas will more than likely find himself as a first-round pick when the 2018 NBA Draft comes calling in June. And we’ll all be able to enjoy yet another Antetokounmpo take the NBA by storm.
