One day before the “Antetokounbros 2017” at Athens’ Olympiac indoor gym, Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo were the guests at Onassis Cultural center.

In what seemed to be an unexpected partnership, the Onassis Foundation welcomed at the Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, Greece, two young men who had an unexpected journey.

From the hardships of the immigrants’ life in Athens to the NBA thanks to their abilities. It was a discussion about the difficulties they encountered during their early beginning, the many obstacles, their achievements and the opportunities they had.

And Giannis is just starting. Even if basketball was not the main topic, he talked about his goals and he admitted that he doesn’t want to limit them: “I don’t want to sound cocky, but I have the highest possible goals. I want to be a champion with the Bucks, I want to be the MVP, I want to be part of the best 50 of all time and then I want to be the best ever who played the game”.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich traveled Tuesday to Southern California and met with Kawhi Leonard prior to Thursday’s NBA draft, league sources told ESPN.

Leonard had told confidants that he did not want to sit down with Popovich and has been purposely difficult for the Spurs to reach recently. Among the issues, Leonard is angry over what he believes was the Spurs’ mishandling of his quad injury, and he remains irate with public comments from teammate Tony Parker and Popovich that he felt were not supportive of him, league sources said.

So far, the Spurs have been largely reluctant to give teams guidance on the players, or packages, that would interest them in trades, sources said.
