Watch: Greek fans mob Giannis outside MSG

Wed Jan 04 19:13:59 EST 2017 | The Score
Giannis Antetokounmpo is quite the popular fella in the Big Apple, especially with the local Greek community. It's nice to know someone in New York had a soft spot for the Greek Freak on Wednesday night, especially after Antetokounmpo nailed a jumper with time expiring to lift his Milwaukee Bucks to a 105-104 victory over the New York Knicks. Before boarding the team bus, the 22-year-old was greeted by a large group of Greek basketball fans looking to take a photo or snag an autograph.
