Tony Kalkavouras on Giannis' Health, Greece National Team stories
2021-07-03

Giannis Antetokounmpo will play next in either Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals (if a Game 7 is necessary), or in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns. That is the inside scoop from the most famous basketball journalist in Greece, Tony Kalkavouras of ERT-TV (Greek National TV) and gazaeeta.gr, the top Sports Web site in Greece.

Kalkavouras shared that information along with some backstories about Greece and Nigeria fighting to get Giannis to play for their respective national teams, along with some insight into Sofoklis Schortsanitis, the beefy Greek center who was drafted by the Clippers but never made it to the NBA, having his biggest moment of international glory in 2006 when Greece (currently competing in an Olympic qualifier in Canada) defeated Team USA in Saitama, Japan in one of the biggest upsets in international basketball history. Kalkavouras joined veteran NBA and Team USA journalist Chris Sheridan for the latest episode of The Sheridan Show.
