In 2013, when the Bucks selected Giannis Antetokounmpo as the 15th pick in the NBA draft, a lot of us didn't think we'd have to worry about how to pronounce his name. He wouldn't be around for long. He was thin, untested, unknown and raw babyfaced teenager with just a handful of impressive clips against limited competition...from Greece? He started showing us what he could do in the first couple of seasons. OH-OH.....how the heck are we going to pronounce his name. Let's just call him "The Greek Freak". Well the soon to be crowned NBA MVP has earned the right to be called by only his first name...Giannis. Just like Tiger, Micheal, and Magic. What we love the most is that Giannis still remains humble. Our good friend from OnMilwaukee.com, Matt Mueller has put together the incredible timeline of how we got here.
