In the latest installment of “Catch a Rising Star,” Boston Celtics president Danny Ainge traveled to Greece to get a first-hand look at Giannis Adetokunbo, the 6-foot-10 point guard who is moving up draft boards by leaps and bounds.
Ainge was in the house — and got heckled by Lakers fans — as Adetokunbo scored 19 points and grabbed 9 rebounds and two steals in the championship round of the Greek A2 league.
Ainge also saw the CSKA-Panathinaikos Euroleague game, an is quoted by Greek media as comparing Adetokundo as reminding him of a young Scottie Pippen.
