On Monday night the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks kicked off their preseason set of games in Chicago while Stacey King kicked off his season with an extremely weird pronunciation of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s name.
So glad the NBA is back. Here's Stacy King's best attempt at Giannis Antetokounmpo's name https://t.co/O8OA4vgsRr— Dan Clyne (@danCLYNE) October 4, 2016
This will be Antetokounmpo’s fourth year in the league so now is a great time to go ahead and pronounce his name correctly. And if you’re sitting there reading this and thinking you may also not know how to say his last name, the correct pronunciation is \YAHN-iss ah-deh-toh-KOON-boh\ aka The Greek Freak.
