    Good read, hopefully people will show him more respect on here after this. Don't let the MVP race cloud your mind, the guy went through an amazing journey to get to where he is. Actually somewhat similar to Dream, a coach recognising his talent in another sport he wasn't necessarily good at. Guy had fire and was drilled like crazy, now we know why he plays like he does. Also crazy how he was treated like **** in Greece and now their pride and joy, funny how life works.

    legend has it that his mother was visited by an eagle one night, which turned into a handsome man and made love to her.

    Treated like ****? How are illegal immigrants treated over there?
    Allowed to open their own business become CEOs or play in the NCAA with no green card and no papers? Go in vacation out of the country and come and go over the borders as they wish?
    Hey at least we dont separate here toddlers from parents. Do you think that when he was roaming the street of Athens selling glasses the policemen who saw him didn't know he was illegal without any papers? Yet they turned a blind eye for almost 20 years and he was offered free education and free healthcare.
    Really **** treatment.
    That's why he has refused any connections with the country since then.
