Giannis didn't know about 60 Minutes before interview

LOS ANGELES (CBS 58) -- Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said he didn't know what 60 Minutes was before being contacted for his big interview that aired this past Sunday. 

According to ESPN, in an interview after Tuesday night's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers Giannis said, "To be honest with you, at first when my agent told me, 'They want you to do an interview, a piece for "60 Minutes," 'I was like, 'What is "60 Minutes"?'"

When Giannis found out that being on the program was a big deal and the last NBA player to be on was LeBron James he agreed.

Giannis said he was very happy with how the interview turned out, "The piece was really, really good. I loved it. It talked about me, it talked about my family, it talked about where I came from. And the most important thing, it talked about how hard someone's got to work to succeed in life and that was really, really good that they did that. It was a great piece by them."
