Evan Zeppos, Michael Best Strategies principal and senior public affairs advisor, was quoted by Today’s TMJ4 (Milwaukee) in “Giannis Antetokounmpo responds to racist slur used against his brother.”

“Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo took to social media late Wednesday night to defend his older brother, who was attacked with a racial slur by a broadcaster in Greece.

Evan Zeppos, a Greek-American, as well as a Principal and Senior Public Affairs Advisor at Michael Best Strategies LLC, said he admired Giannis's response.

‘If you go to his biography on Twitter, and on Instagram, I think you’ll see that he talks about family and loyalty,’ Zeppos said. ‘What’s in his defense of his brother? Family and loyalty.’

‘I just think that’s, to me, typically Greek,’ Zeppos said. ‘Because we have the phrase that blood is thicker than water, that’s how we look at things. So is it a surprise for Giannis to be defending his brother?  Absolutely not.’”
