The “Greek Freak” returns to the national team for the first time since the 2019 Basketball World Cup in China. The Greeks got eliminated in the group stage and failed to reach the quarter-finals.
This time, though, Antetokounmpo has his sights set on leading Greece to the top of Europe, with the national team being among the favorites to go all the way.
The two-time NBA MVP and the rest of the team will travel to Milano, Italy in late August for the group stage of the EuroBasket. They will take on hosts Italy, Estonia, Great Britain, Ukraine and Croatia in Group C.
