ALEX ANTETOKOUNMPO THINK He played a good match. The dominant striker of Dominica High School and the youngest of the four brothers who played basketball scored 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists with a 20-point victory at Mekong Homestead High School on December 7.
His brother, Jeannie, had other ideas. The NBA MVP had just lost the LA Clippers on his 25th birthday, with his own 27-point game, 11 rebounds and four assists. Normally he quits Alex’s high school game quickly to avoid being chased by fans, but after this performance, he continued to share blunt comments. Alex then sent a text message to coach Jim Goth.
Another Alex will appear, he said.
In the eyes of Jeannis, Alex did not have enough defenses that night, so he did not want to loosen his brother at the end of the court. Not when Alex has much to accomplish.
I tell you one thing, it’s hard to be Alex, Jannis said. It is difficult to recruit three siblings. He wants to be recruited but must improve every day. There are days of inactivity, days of difficulties, and days of insecurity, but that’s what we intervene to say: “Hey, you’re good, do your best. Raise your head, would be really good.
Alex cannot escape the cautious eyes of his superstar brothers, especially if they share the same house. The two brothers live with their mother, Veronica, and Janis’s girlfriend, Maria Riddle Springer, and the couple’s newborn son, Liam Charles Annette. The baby receives his middle name from Charles, the father of Antecompo. Charles was instrumental in establishing a work ethic that drives today’s brothers.
He put you in the notion of “don’t give a shit,” said Jannis. I feel stiff, I always have it, but its “No Give f” mentality, whether I win, lose, play well or play badly, just go out And chase it. What is the worst thing that can happen?
For the brothers, success is not measured in wins and losses, but this season, Ganninis, Thanasis, and Kostas will play with the two most winning teams in the NBA. Responding to his father’s legacy remains a primary goal.
