Adrian Wojnarowski is hosting a three-part series on Monday for ESPN. The series is called The Giannis Draft, and looks at the behind the scenes process that brought Giannis Antetokounmpo to the NBA from Greece.
The 2013 NBA Draft is thought by many NBA fans to be one of the worst ever. Aside from Antetokounmpo, only two other first rounders have been named All Stars. Giannis was passed over by 14 teams before being selected at number 15 by the Milwaukee Bucks. Kelly Olynyk, Alex Len, and Nerlens Noel were amongst the names called before his. Woj goes in depth with NBA executives, agents, and Giannis himself to get an inside look at how the night played out.
All three episodes of The Giannis Draft are available now. They are in the Woj Pod feed on multiple podcast platforms.
