“I am just trying to show my basketball abilities,”he said after his third workout.
Antetokounmpo, 19, attended Dominican at the high school level. He then opted to turn pro and joined UCAM Murcia for the 2020-21 season. “I felt it was the best decision for me as far as developing, to keep growing as a basketball player.”
Fresh off celebrating the Milwaukee Bucks NBA championship with his brothers, the youngest of the Antetokounmpos is looking into Thursday’s NBA draft.
“It’s a dream,” he replied to a question on potentially being the next Antetokounmpo in the NBA, “I just to keep working and stay focused.”
“Energetic. I am a leader, pretty vocal on and off the court. I just try to contribute to the game any way that I can,” he mentioned describing himself, “I feel like there is no part of my game that is complete. I can improve in any single part of my game.”
Giannis was picked with the 15th overall pick of the 2013 draft. Thanasis went 51st in 2014 and Kostas 60th in 2018. A tough act to follow for Alex as his brothers have also been crowned NBA champions in 2020 (Kostas) and 2021 (Giannis, Thanasis).
