The incident caused much uproar in European basketball – and not just – as the Greek Union of Basketball Players and even Giannis himself made a statement in regards to the racist slur.
Accordingly, the ELPA also stood in favor of the player with a comment posted on their social media that reads:
“ELPA strongly condemns the statement that was made against Thanasis Antetokounmpo and would like to express support to him and his family. We should all strive for a more respectful, hate free society and sports environment.”
