The “Antetokounbros” gave a show in front of the Venetian castle in Heraklion, during the first out of the three events that will take place during their small tour in Greece!
Eurohoops co-organized the whole event, along with the region of Crete and the municipality of Heraklion. Hence, we give you a good taste, through pictures and videos, of what transpired in this fantastic basketball party.
As for what happened in the game? Thanasis’ team defeated the one of Giannis 114-11. Thanasis scored 55 points, while Giannis had 57.
Get a glimpse of everything that happened in Heraklion. Thessaloniki and Athens are next!
“Our ultimate dream? All the Antetokounmpos in the Greek national team”
After the end of the game, Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo talked to the local media saying that “Our ultimate dream is for all of the Antetokounmpo brothers to play in the Greek national team”!
The crowd packed the harbor of Heraklion for the event. When they were asked why do they believe that people loves them so much, Giannis and Thanasis answered: “We are guys who had a hard life. We are authentic. There are strong bonds within our family and we love each other very much. That’s what people like about us because they understand that it is authentic”.
In the end, they made their comments about the event: “We are very happy. We had such a good time in Crete. We will be coming in Crete during the upcoming years, that’s for sure. Today’s event was just the beginning. Greater things are ahead in the two upcoming events, as well as in the following years”.
