We've often heard of multiple siblings from the same family being able to make the NBA. Stephen Curry and Seth Curry come to mind, as do the Lopez brothers, Brook and Robin. There's no doubt that sometimes, there are multiple siblings from the same family that end up making the NBA. While they don't always end up as players that are similar in ability, with one sibling being better than the other, making the NBA is an achievement in itself.

The Antetokounmpo brothers are a trio of brothers that are all in the NBA, which is obviously amazing. With Giannis Antetokounmpo winning his first championship ring after beating the Phoenix Suns, the brother trio has set a new achievement. The Antetokounmpo brothers are now the only brother trio to all have NBA championships.

While Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thanasis Antetokounmpo only became NBA champions this season, Kostas Antetokounmpo became an NBA champion with the 2019-20 Los Angeles Lakers. Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol have both won NBA championships during their careers, but the Antetokounmpo brothers are the first trio to achieve the feat.

There is no question that the Antetokounmpo brothers have something to be proud of with their NBA championship. Only one team wins every season and there are many teams who face failure on their way to the ultimate goal. For a trio of brothers to all have NBA titles is special, and perhaps there will be more titles in their future.
