Antetokounmpo in Greece as mom, brother handed citizenship

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo was in Greece for a meeting with the country's prime minister Thursday and a special ceremony to bestow Greek citizenship on his mother Veronica and younger brother Alex.

The Milwaukee Bucks forward attended the ceremony at the official residence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, the son of Nigerian immigrants.

He was granted Greek citizenship in 2013, allowing him to travel to the United States and join the Bucks later that year.
