Default Giannis Antetokoumpo Greek 6'10" Point Guard (7'4" Wingspan) "Hottest Draft Prospect"

He's an 18 year old point guard from Greece, that NBA teams are measuring at 6'10", with a 7'4" wingspan. He is said to be the hottest prospect for NBA lotto teams. Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge compares him to Scottie Pippen.

from the highlights ive seen he is raw and fragile, but he is tall, athletic and black so theres definitely potential.

Fun fact of the day-The nigerian and the greeks are battling to see who he will play for internationally. Will greece beat nigeria this time???

He's not eligible to play for Nigeria's national team.

The link says nothing about him being eligible to play for Nigeria.

It says Nigeria's federation would like him to play for them. Regardless, he has no Nigerian citizenship and he's not eligible to play for them.

His brother already said him and his brother can't and won't play for Nigeria. Besides that, the link isn't even correct. It says he does not have a passport, probably copying the nonsense from draftexpress.

He DOES have a Greek passport. It's just a mistake from Draftexpress that they are copying.

The undocumented part isn't true either (again copying a mistake from Draftexpress). You can't attend school in Greece if you don't have any documentation. This guy and his brother have been going to school in Greece their whole lives. So none of that crap is true. It's just Draftexpress trying to stir up some kind of controversy.

Like I said, it's not my source. It's just something they copied from Draftexpress. It's not like Draftexpress is known as being a legit source for anything, considering how many blatant errors are on their site.
