Although Greece lost to the USA team, they are still on their way to reaching the second stage of the World Cup competition. If they beat New Zealand on the final day, they will confirm their qualification to the next round. What Thanassis clearly demonstrates, beyond what is happening in this tournament, is that he will help his country whenever he can.

After spending the last four seasons with the Bucks alongside his brother Giannis, Thanassis re-signed with the Wisconsin organization this summer on a one-year, veteran minimum deal. Although they trusted him again, the truth was that last season he didn’t have a lot of minutes, which led him to consider changing teams and going to the New York Knicks.
