The symbols of ultranationalist far-right “Golden Dawn” party were painted on the graffiti that was created in the open court where Giannis Antetokounmpo first touched a basketball in Athens, Greece.

It’s not the first time that Giannis Antetokounmpo is attacked by “Golden Dawn”.

Nikos Michaloilakos, the head of the party, had lashed out at Giannis when he received the Greek nationality, calling the now NBA All-Star a “chimpanzee” during a television interview.

The fact that Giannis Antetokounmpo is not playing with the Greek national team in the Eurobasket tournament due to a knee injury fueled more racist slur on social media by members and sympathizers of “Golden Dawn”.
