Giannis Named All-Star Game Starter

By Adam Roberts – 2/19/2021

While the news may not carry much weight, given that his team is in the middle of its worst losing streak since 2016-17 and the fact that the game itself is being scrutinized by the player community, but the Greek Freak is once again one of the first five Easter Conference representatives in the All Star Game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was once again named an All Star starter yesterday for the fifth straight year. He is joined in the frontcourt by Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, Philly’s Joel Embiid, Boston’s Jayson Tatum, and Miami’s Jimmy Butler.

In regular Bucks news, the team’s downward spiral continued yesterday with a 110-96 loss to Toronto. Milwaukee faces Oklahoma City tonight, who defeated the Bucks last week 114-109.
