A detailed 'Giannis Antetokounmpo brothers' list from eldest to youngest: Francis, Thanasis, Giannis, Kostas and Alex.
The 'Giannis Antetokounmpo brothers in NBA' is widely known among fans. Thanasis plays with Giannis at Milwaukee Bucks. The duo has repeatedly been in the headlines this season for their outrageous WWE-style warmup routine. Meanwhile, younger brother Kostas is currently at LA Lakers, where he signed a two-year contract. While Thanasis or Kostas are yet to make the impact Giannis has had in the NBA, they are the most recognised among the so-called 'Giannis Antetokounmpo brothers'.
Delving into the lesser recognised brothers of Giannis, the eldest among them in Francis. Some reports suggest he was the only one of the five brothers who was not born in Greece. Unlike, the Antetokounmpo brothers in NBA, Francis found success in football. Although he did play basketball in Greece, he found limited success in the sport before switching to football. The 32-year-old played football in Nigeria and in the second-tier of Greek football.
The youngest of the lot and a budding basketball player, Alex (or Alexis) plays high school basketball in the US. An exciting prospect, Alex is already projected as a first-round pick for the 2021 NBA Draft.
