There is still a year to go, but Giannis Antetokounmpo seems ready to return to the Greek team to play the Eurobasket 2022, which will have five venues and will take place from September 1 to 18.
The star of the Bucks was not in the pre-Olympic tournament with Greece because it was taking place at the same time that he was playing the NBA playoffs; However, looking forward to 2022, with the return of the usual calendar in the American competition, he would have time to rest between championships and be present in both.
It is true that Giannis has not officially ruled on the matter, but taking into account social networks – a source of information in the present – The Greek Freak has made his approach clear today. To be exact, the official Eurobasket account has announced that there is one year left until the start of the international tournament, a publication to which the Greek replied: “We are going to take it day by day, but I can’t wait.”
It remains to be seen what will finally happen with Antetokounmpo and other European stars who compete in the NBA, but the truth is that we may be facing a fantastic championship with players of the stature of Nikola Jokic, Luka Doncic, Bogdan Bogdanovic or Evan Fournier. There is a year left, but the tournament between European countries sounds really good.
