Antetokounmpo brothers: Giannis, Thanasis and Kostas become second-ever brother trio to appear in an NBA game

In the Bucks-Lakers game at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, which the visitors won 112-97, the Antetokounmpo brothers made NBA history.

They became the second-ever brother trio to feature in the same NBA game.

Giannis, who has won the last two MVPs and multiple other accolades through his eight seasons in the league, called this moment his favourite in the league.

"Just being on the same court while our mom is having her phone and videotaping the whole thing. I think it's priceless," Giannis said postgame.

Giannis finished the game with 25 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals while the eldest among the trio Thanasis finished with eight points, two steals and a rebound.

The trio of brothers all were donning sneakers from Giannis' signature sneaker line with NIKE.
