When Jonathan Givony DraftExpress was available to the world Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2013, an NBA team who was not aware of "The Greek Freak" or was not really thinking about it as it was the prospect of falling suddenly on Greece in tunnels. People from all levels of the NBA's main office almost viewed Antetokounmpo.

"Every day – practicing, at games – executives, GMs, coaches assistant, all teams came. 29 teams except the Knicks, New York Knicks, "Panou said.

Antetokounmpo is now a potential MVP with Milwaukee, which he chose No. 15 overall in the NBA Draft 2013. Knicks did not pick up to No. 24, when they were selected Tim Hardaway Jr.
