    Default Giannis Antetokoumpo Thread

    Hey I've been hearing a lot about this guy, He and his brother now have their passports This means they can now travel outside the country to play in games in different countries, or in different leagues. It also means that both brothers can now officially be registered with the Greek national team for official tournaments.Bryan Colangelo of the Toronto Raptors and Masai Ujiri of the Denver Nuggets already watch his game. Unfortunaley I have only seen Highlight videos on Youtube, For those who have seen him in a full game, What's the scouting report on this guy? Does he really play the point guard position?

    I guess sooner or later we were going to have a thread for at least one of the Adetokubo brothers...
    We had some discussions about him in the thread below but I think it would be better if we move the discussion into this thread.

    along celtics there is interesting from many other teams of the NBA.
    somewhere i read that 18scouts have been seen him from the start of the season.
    he is a huge prospect and along his one year older brother he is the best prospects of Greek basketball.
    next year most probably Yannis will play to Zaragosa who managed soon to take his signature while Thanasis his brother to PAO or OLY.
    more info is that the family has 2 more childs.The young one it has been said that has the most talent of all according to his age ofcourse..

    Giannis indeed seems to be a really huge talent and basketball analysts are saying that if Giannis decides to enter the NBA draft he might be selected in the first round (mid to late first round)

    Yeah they're actually 5 brothers and all play/played with Filathlitikos

    Andreas Adetokubo (195, Forward, 1984)
    Thanasis Adetokubo (200, Forward, 1993)
    Giannis Adetokubo (206, Forward, 1994)
    Kostas Adetokubo (190, Forward, 1997)... Currently playing with Filathlitikos Jr. Team
    Alexandros Adetokubo (183, Guard, 2001)... Currently playing with Filathlitikos Jr. Team

    I've watched a game of his and a few other highlight/scouting videos and I am impressed with the way he moves. He seems fast with good lift, moves laterally well, handles look decently tight for a player his size. At this very early point, I actually like what I've seen from him more than any other European prospect this year or next.

    Today's news. The Adetokubo bros will both have a Greek passport soon as the legal framework allowed it after all and there's strong will by both the federation and sports ministry

    That's great news! Because I still remember reading this article a couple of months ago...


    Court orders citizenship law to be scrapped

    Council of State deems right of migrants to become Greek unconstitutional

    ekathimerini.com , Tuesday February 5, 2013 (20:40)

    The Council of State on Tuesday deemed unconstitutional a law passed almost three years ago which allows second-generation migrants to apply for Greek citizenship and to stand in local elections.

    Greece’s highest administrative court ruled that only Greeks could stand for office. It also decided that the criteria for offering Greek citizenship were not sufficient and that each case should be examined individually to ensure the applicant has a genuine bond with Greece.

    Known as the Ragousis law after former Interior Minister Yiannis Ragousis, the citizenship law was ratified by Parliament in early 2010, allowing those who had been born to immigrant parents legally living in Greece for at least five years to be granted Greek citizenship provided they had studied at a Greek school for a minimum of six years.

    The Council of State’s decision could mean that some of those who were granted Greek citizenship in the last three years will lose their rights. It is not clear if the ruling will affect the outcome of local elections in 2010.

    Greece had stopped granting citizenship under Ragousis criteria law in December, in anticipation of the court ruling being made public. The decision irked coalition partners PASOK and Democratic Left.

    Deputy Interior Minister Haralambos Athanassiou said last month that the law would be replaced with legislation that would require migrants to show a “genuine bond” with Greece and prove they had assimilated into Greek culture.

    “Visits” are on a weekly basis and as we approach the draft day, interest for Giannis Adetoncubo will increase day by day. Representatives of eight different NBA teams (Pistons, Heat, Spurs, Grizzlies, Utah, Denver Cavaliers, Hawks) were present at the game of Filathlitikos against Kifisia on the 27th of April and three days later, three more teams sent their executives to Athens.

    It's now confirmed that Giannis Adetokubo has obtained the Greek passport and can represent the Greek NT if selected.

    I know google is horrible to use when it comes to translating but you can see that Giannis is proud and really wants to represent the Greek NT rather than the Nigerian one.

    I've been watching Antetokounmpo with the B' NT: my dears, the guy is pure basketball. If he'll be allowed to learn some basics within the next two-three years, he'll be a terrific All Star.

    This picture says a lot about Antetokoumpo's freakish leaping abilities

    Did the guy in blue actually put that much arc on the shot from that distance just to get it over Antetokounmpo's reach? That must have looked ridiculous watching it live

    No idea to be honest... I saw this pic posted on twitter by Jonathan Givony from Draft Express.

    He definitely has huge potential and I think the Bucks took a good decision. Congrats or as they say in Greek "syncharitiria"
