Antetokounmpo invited to Presidential Palace


Greek forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who earlier this week led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA championship in 50 years, has been invited to attend Saturday’s event at the Presidential Palace marking the anniversary of the restoration of Greece’s democracy on July 24, 1974, Kathimerini understands.

It has not been confirmed if Antetokounmpo, who also lands in Athens on Saturday, will attend the event.

The invite reflects the broader philosophy of this year’s event, as President Katerina Sakellaropoulou has said she that wants her guest list to represent the depth and breadth of Greek society.
