Antetokoumpo didn’t speak to media after the last game of Greece in the World Cup, a win over the Czech Republic. Greece needed victory with a 12+ margin in order to advance but won by seven. Giannis was fouled in the mid of the fourth period after being called with a controversial offensive foul.

This was Antetokounmpo’s second World Cup tournament, following the one in 2014. In this year’s tournament, the reigning NBA MVP averaged team-highs 14.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.4 steals, along with 2.4 assists in 25.0 minutes.
