The Greek translation of a book which chronicles the background and rise of Greek basketball player



The Greek translation of a book which chronicles the background and rise of Greek basketball player Giannis Antetokounmpo to the sport's mega-stardom was presented in Athens on Wednesday, in a discussion between the author and local journalists.


Written by Spanish sportswriter Jose Manuel Puertas, the biography follows Antetokounmpo's trajectory from his humble beginnings at the district of Sepolia in Athens, up to his rise to "Most Valuable Player" (MVP) status during his second season in the NBA in 2020.


The original title of the book is “ Giannis Antetokounmpo: An MVP Born out of Misery” (in Spanish, "Giannis Antetokounmpo: el MVP que surgio de la miseria”).
