Giannis Antetokounmpo trolls brother Kostas as Lakers ‘champ champ’ again
Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has done quite a bit of prodding with respect to the fact his brother, Kostas, is an NBA champion as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. With the brothers back together again in Greece, The Greek Freak is using every excuse to troll Kostas.
Giannis tweeted out a picture of Kostas apparently attempting to recreate one of the famous scenes from the movie “Titanic.” Kostas may not have played much of a role for the Lakers, but he’s still the king of the world:

The former Dayton standout played in just five games during the regular season, and he did not appear in the playoffs. But he still has the possession his older brother covets the most.
Giannis and the Bucks were seen as a favorite heading into the playoffs, but they were totally overwhelmed by a motivated Miami Heat squad. The early playoff exit has only fueled the fire with respect to Antetokounmpo’s future.
The two-time league MVP will be a free agent after the 2020-21 campaign if he does not sign a supermax extension with Milwaukee this offseason.
There are already a number of teams that appear to be angling for a run at Giannis next summer, if they get the opportunity to do so.
Of course, a championship could change all of that.
Antetokounmpo has been on record about wanting to build something of his own in Milwaukee, and he said after the team’s playoff exit he would not demand a trade. Moreover, the Bucks might spend over the luxury tax to surround their star with pieces, and they’ll be gunning for a title again next season after their recent disappointments.
Perhaps Giannis will even use Kostas’ own ring as inspiration to push on as he looks for his first title.
