Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greek: Γιάννης Αντετοκούνμπο, born 1994) is a Greek professional basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He stands at 6'11", and while he primarily plays the small forward position, he is equally as effective as a guard due to his sound ball-handling skills. During the 2015–16 season, he began to shine as the Bucks' primary playmaker. He is of Nigerian origin.

The son of immigrants from Nigeria, Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, Greece. Three years earlier, his parents moved from Lagos, Nigeria, to Greece, leaving behind their first born son, Francis, with his grandparents. Even though Antetokounmpo and three of his four brothers were born in Greece, they did not qualify automatically to receive full Greek citizenship. For the first 18 years of his life, Antetokounmpo had no papers, neither from Nigeria, nor from Greece. Antetokounmpo grew up in the Athens neighborhood of Sepolia. Like other immigrants to Greece, his parents struggled to find work. Antetokounmpo and his older brother, Thanasis, would help out by hawking watches, bags and sunglasses. He started playing basketball in 2007, and by 2009, he was playing competitively for the youth squad of Filathlitikos.

He has played for the Greek National Team as well as the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks.

6'11" 235 lb. Christopher Bosh (born 1984) is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA). A high school "Mr. Basketball" in Texas, Bosh left college at Georgia Tech after one season with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men's basketball team to enter the 2003 NBA draft. He was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in a very competitive draft class that included multiple future NBA superstars such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony. While at Toronto, Bosh emerged as one of the young stars in the league; he became a five-time NBA All-Star, was named to the All-NBA second team once, appeared for the US national team (with whom he won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics), and supplanted former fan-favorite Vince Carter as the face and leader of the Raptors franchise.

In the 2006–07 season, Bosh led the Raptors to their first NBA Playoffs berth in five years, and their first ever division title. He left Toronto for the Miami Heat in 2010 as its all-time leader in points, rebounds, blocks, double doubles, free throws made and attempted, and minutes played. Bosh won his first NBA title after Miami defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 4–1 in the 2012 NBA Finals. He won his second title in 2013 as the Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals. Bosh was nicknamed CB4 by Toronto Raptors play-by-play commentator Chuck Swirsky, a combination of Bosh's initials and then jersey number. Seeking to promote sports and education amongst youths in Dallas and Toronto, Bosh set up the Chris Bosh Foundation and regularly speaks to youths about the benefits of reading.
