“Yannis Antitoconempo’s accounts on social media have been hacked and have been canceled,” Pax announced Thursday night.
“An investigation into the incident has been opened,” added a statement, leading the eastern region ranking and holder of the best record in the league before the suspension of competitions last March, due to the emerging Corona virus.
One of the tweets was a matter of concern to Pax fans, after it seemed that the best NBA player for the 2018-2019 season was “going to Warriors”.
Other tweets abused other players such as LeBron James, the Lakers, and the legend of the latter, Bryant, who died last January in a helicopter crash, and was considered by the “Greek giant” as his ideal.
Hours later, the 25-year-old succeeded in recovering his Twitter account and apologized for what happened.
“The tweets and posts were very offensive,” Yannis wrote, “I am disappointed and disgusted that someone may say these terrible things.”
He continued: “I feel so bad that Pax, Chris (Middleton team-mate) LeBron and the family of (Steven) Corrie (Warriors player) were the subject of malicious and incorrect tweets.” To be exposed to this kind of negativity and behavior. “

Before Pax was confirmed by Pax, Yannis’ brother Costas, who plays for the Lakers, announced that his brother’s various accounts had been compromised.
He wrote through his own account: “Yannis’ account on Twitter, his phone, email, and his bank account have been hacked. He apologizes for what was published and will return as soon as possible.”
The NBA games were suspended since the night of March 11th, after it was confirmed that the French Utah Jazz player Rudi Goubert was “Covid-19”, without specifying any date for the possibility of resuming.
