Luka Doncic revealed that he watches more EuroLeague than NBA games, and for another NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, European basketball has a special place.

The two-time NBA MVP’s brother Kostas plays for Fenerbahce, and the Greek Freak revealed to Eurohoops that he tries to watch as many European games as possible.

I am watching as much as I can. I am very happy for Kostas to decide to play for one of the best Euroleague teams right now. To help be great, Obviously, I have to go with Fenerbahce,” Giannis Antetokounpo said.

The Greek national team player also follows Olympiacos and notes that the Piraeus team is having a great season. Giannis many times has trained in Olympiacos gym during the offseason back in Greece and met with former player and club legend Vasilis Spanoulis (photo) calling him “the Kobe of Europe“.

Olympiacos is playing very well, as is Fenerbahce. Those are the two teams I kind of follow, not gonna lie.

Giannis also commented on the other Greek team in EuroLeague – Panathinaikos.

Panathinaikos is a good team, but… I don’t know if they will reach the Final Four, but I know that Olympiacos is really good,” Antetokounmpo concluded.

Previously, Giannis talked to Eurohoops about Lebron James and his scoring record, and his new teammate Jae Crowder, and the trade deadline deals.
