Giannis Antetokounmpo could have a member of his family best him
Giannis Antetokounmpo has taken the NBA by storm during the past two seasons, but the youngest member of his family is already taking the right steps to surpass him.
Alex Antetokounmpo, the youngest of five brothers, could make the dream come true if he is drafted into the NBA, completing a perfect 4-for-4 of the Antetokounbros making it into the league after Thanasis (New York Knicks), Kostas (Dallas Mavericks), and the aforementioned Giannis (Milwaukee Bucks) were drafted.

The youngest of the four brothers initially pictured in offseason workouts already stands at 6-foot-7 and has a giant 7-foot-2 wingspan as a 16-year-old high schooler, who plays for Dominican High in Milwaukee.
Alex is still a few years away from breaking as a college prospect, in the class of 2020 — but it’s worth noting that the one-and-done rule could be potentially extinct by that time, making him eligible to be drafted outright from high school.
“He’s going to be better than me,” the Bucks star told TMZ Sports last year.
The lanky wing has already received Division I offers and taken an unofficial visit to the University of Wisconsin, according to 247 Sports, a clear sign that he is already on the NCAA radar as a potential prospect.
Only time will tell if Alex will be the next Greek Freak to break into the league, but based on his high school footage, it won’t take long before we know it.
