Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is working out in Greece to prepare for an attempted repeat of an NBA championship with the Bucks.
This is different than most stars, who seem to make Los Angeles or Miami as their pick for offseason workouts. Not the forever-humbled Antetokounmpo.
“Antetokounmpo came to Greece for a few days and didn’t miss time from his training,” wrote Yiannis Bouranis of TalkBasket. “The ‘Greek Freak’ did his workout at Piece and Friendship Stadium, the home court of EuroLeague powerhouse Olympiacos.”
Antetokounmpo, 26, is 6-foot-11 and led the Bucks to their first championship in 50 years and second overall. He averaged 28.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 5.9 assists in 61 regular season games.

But Antetokounmpo and the Bucks seem to enjoy the role as dark horse, and Antetokounmpo is clearly putting in the work.
Like most everyone around the NBA, the Bucks open training camp at the end of the month.
