Adetokunbo brothers in All Star mood


By Niki Bakouli/ bakouli@eurohoops.net

Brent Petway of AGOR was the star of the show in Sunday’s Greek All Star Game as he won the dunk contest and even performed a Greek song, but in the future this game will be remembered for something else. The Adetokunbo brothers were invited for the dunk contest and finally got to play into the All Star Game as members of the Greek All Stars, even if they still waiting for their Greek passports.

Thanasis Adetokunbo (6’7 ft or 2,01 m.) was participating in the dunk contest and he did jump over his 18 years old brother and NBA prospect Giannis Adetokunbo (video) who is 6’9 ft tall (2,06 m.). That was supposed to be their chance to shine, but in the last moment – something generally typical in Greece – it was decided that the players competing in the three point and dunk contest will be used in the main event. So the Adetokunbos played in the Greek league All Star Game, despite being members of a second division team, Filathlitikos.

They welcomed the chance as 20 years old Thanasis was the top scorer for the Greek All Stars with 18 points and Giannis added 8 points. The final score was 131-125 in favor of the Rest of the World Stars behind 26 points by the MVP of the game Brent Petway.

    They actually spell their last name Adetokoubo.

Hair-raising to the final whistle!
