Giannis Antetokounmpo Is the Pride of a Greece That Shunned Him

Eye-opening article about the NBA star and his struggles growing up. Pathetic that whites NOW embrace him just because he can put a basketball through a hoop.

Thanks for posting. You really can't get any more blatant than that.

I was born in the same town as LeBron. They tried to keep him and a few other athletes from transferring to St. Vincent's High School. Now they have made a complete 180 and named a part of downtown Main St. King James Way. He is the best thing that ever happened there in decades. And he gives back, funding major education programs.

Interesting. Never really thought about it. I spent about 3-4 days in Greece and I never ran into any person of African descent.
