LONDON — Was that a “Greek Freak’’ guarantee, British-style?
Giannis Antetokounmpo, the young Bucks small forward, is certain of two things: His brother Thanasis will soon be signed by the Knicks, and his club is going to beat New York again Thursday at the O2.

The loquacious Bucks forward was asked if he thought the Knicks would bring up his brother, who was drafted 51st last June but has been playing in the D-League with the Westchester Knicks after not being signed to the NBA roster.

“He’s ready,’’ Antetokounmpo said at the Bucks’ practice Wednesday at O2 Arena. “I don’t think the Knicks have to lose anything. They lose 15 [straight] now. Tomorrow is going to be 16. They don’t have anything to lose. My brother could bring energy to the team and [is] hard-working, and guys from the team can see that and take something from him.’’


The Greek Freak has a right to be confident. The Bucks already have routed the 5-35 Knicks three times this season and once in the preseason.

The Knicks have three players on 10-day deals, so roster spots should open soon. Only Langston Galloway from that group is all but certain to re-up. There’s also a possibility of Andrea Bargnani being bought out. Bargnani still is nursing a sore calf and didn’t make the trip.
Antetokounmpo is sure his brother will get a chance shortly.

“He’s going to make it,’’ Antetokounmpo said. “I think the call-up is going to be soon, hopefully soon. My brother is working hard, keeps staying focused and does what it takes to make it in the league. He’s working, effort is going to pay off.

“I thought he [would] get called up before the game. I’m a little disappointed he’s not going to play tomorrow against me.’’

outside 2000-01', the Bucks have never been a really good team since I was just starting to watch basketball haha.

They were legit in the 80's, and a contender for a few years with Ray, Cassel, and the Big Dogg....

I think you read it wrong. Outside of one season, the Bucks have been whatever since I started watching in 84". They were really good in that mid 80's period, but not so much outside the one year they went to the WCF's with Big Dog, Ray, and Sammy

Knicks suck and his brother hasn't been called up yet. Non news imo.

Having said that, if Greek Freak #2 is as good as little bro says he is, he could mess up the serious tank job lol.

He specifically said since he started watching basketball and you give facts from the 70s.

Thank god someone said it I thought I read it wrong (the guy with the dates) that's some of the most blatant mess up of reading I've seen in a long while

Edit: but I do the same thing or type something to fast and leave out a word so I feel you just made laugh a little bit

Wolves been nonexistent so far as a franchise. Last time Wolves been some what exciting was way back with Googs and Rider. Even then they were depressing. Glad Wolves were gullible to draft and trade Ray Allen draft night for Marbury.

Someone in our forum mentioned if we bring him up now we don't have him on the hook for 2016 or something like that? I am sure it has something to do with us wanting him long term and also not wanting to add cap for next season.

Hawkeye didn't specify when he started with ing basketball until later. It was a legitimate response. For all he knew, Hawkeye is 70.

His brother isn't anywhere close to being NBA ready.

So he'd fit in with about half the roster

knicks are the worst team in the NBA, even worse than the Sixer who play a starting lineup full of misfits who wont even be in the NBA in a couple seasons. It baffles me when people say that A top 5 pick + cap space could save this franchise. Newsflash, If Melo is so i'ntruging as a player, why is his team dead LAST in the nba? That is not going to lure any free agent. Endorsements happen in every city, New york is not going to buy free agents
with it's losing culture. No way is Marc Gasol or Alrdige going to go there. The knicks would be wise to play their young players because clearly they're losing anyways, might as well try to find talent on that roaster.
