1. With a name like that, he’s gotta have a nickname. But it’s not the one you’re thinking. A few years ago, a reporter told Giannis that fans in China had their own nickname for him: Letter Bro. For a guy with 13 letters in his last name, we think it’s fitting. Too bad it didn’t seem to stick. #nickname
  2. Even the Greek Freak gets tired! Giannis and Mariah welcomed Baby Liam, their first child, last month. He says having Liam is the best thing to ever happen to him, buuuttttt he is feeling a little sleepy. Guess he’s just that good cuz we cannot tell AT ALL! #MVDad
  3. Family > Everything. Giannis was selected 15th overall in the 2013 Draft, but he almost wasn’t there for it. Because it wasn’t possible for his whole family to be in New York with him, Giannis didn’t even want to go. His brother Thanasis was able to join, and before Giannis would even answer a question, he asked to have his brother by his side.
  4. Three’s Company. Two of Giannis’ brothers are currently in the NBA. Thanasis gets to play with Giannis everyday as a member of the Bucks, and Kostas is with the Lakers on a two-way. We’re sure four’s not a crowd…Their youngest brother Alex is right behind them! #SuperGreekFreakNBABros
  5. Court vision, literally. Back in his hometown of Sepolia, there’s now a larger than life painting of Giannis going up for a shot on an outdoor court. Not just any court, the court he and his brothers grew up playing on! The painting was done by artist Same84 in collab with Nike…May we say the top 5 collabs ever? #sentimental

I created Fangirl Sports Network as a place for female sports fans to follow their favorite teams with content and coverage that speaks directly to females. It started with one and then eight and now 32 NFL Fangirls and 15 NBA Fangirls.
