The NBA season is over for 27 of the 30 teams. For the vast majority, it is now time to rest up ahead of either the Olympics or pre-season.

For the Antetokounmpo brothers, Thanasis and Giannis, the summer is a time to help continue expanding the game of basketball in their home nation of Greece.

The younger brother, Giannis, had a stellar season for the Milwaukee Bucks, enjoying a real breakthrough after being moved to the point, and is developing into one of the league's future superstars.

Thanasis, the elder, has found life a little harder after being drafted in the second round of 2014. He made his first NBA appearance with the New York Knicks earlier in the season but has spent the majority of his time in the Development League.

They are two of the biggest names in Greek basketball and were joined by another promising talent in Latvian center Kristaps Porzingis.

The three youngsters, all under the age of 23, put on a show for the 5,000 fans in attendance at the "Antetokounbros Streetball Event" in Athens.

The game ended 123-123 and the teams opted against playing overtime as Porzingis scored 21, Giannis dropped 64 and Thanasis had a game-high 69.

There was a distinct lack of defence on show. But given the searing conditions in the European nation, it was no real surprise.
