Giannis Antetokounmpo's all-star weekend keeps getting busier.
A day after his spot in the dunk contest was confirmed, Giannis was officially named as a member of the World roster for the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge (aka the old Rookie-Sophomores game). He'll be joined by Andrew Wiggins and Dante Exum (among others) to take on a U.S. roster led by Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter-Williams (but sadly not Jabari Parker). Giannis also participated in last year's event, scoring nine points in 17 minutes. Full roster details:
So mark your calendars: Rising Stars game on Friday, Dunk Contest on Saturday. Maybe next year a spot in the game on Sunday?
