Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t watch this year's NBA Finals. “Like, I get too tensed up, because I just start sweating on the couch,” Antetokounmpo said. Antetokounmpo took up basketball in Greece with his brother Thanasis and they are still together now on the Milwaukee Bucks – who have a few players who know what it’s like to have siblings in the NBA.
MarJon Beauchamp’s circuitous path to the Milwaukee Bucks included stops at four high schools, a community college and the NBA G League. Bucks assistant general manager Milt Newton said Beauchamp even was homeless at one point. The Bucks believe the hard road he took to the NBA will help the 6-foot-6 wing thrive now that he’s finally made it as the 24th overall pick in the draft.
