Photo of the Day: GlobalGreeks #Antetokounbros Giannis and Athanasios Adetokunbo Drafted - by the Greek Army this time!

Their number was called!

A slightly different kind of draft for Greece's amazing NBA players Giannis (Milwaukee Bucks) and Thanassi Antetokounmpo (New York Knicks)! 

Drafted for Military service which is compulsory in Greece for young men over 18, Giannis and Athansios Adetokunbo showed up at Avlona, a military training base outside Athens yesterday to register. 

They are expected to apply for a postponement of service because of sports commitments and will probably serve their time at a later stage. 

Two young men, children of immigrants to Greece who worked hard to give their children a better life.   

Two young men who love Greece ...and never miss an opportunity to show it.

Two young men who tell us how blessed they feel!

Well done boys! 

Can you imagine Giannis as an Evzon in Greece's elite Presidential Guard?  
We can!

At Global Greek World, We ♥ Greece...and it shows!
