Come on guys, even not following NBA that much, there is no doubt that Giannis would be by far the most known name among those announced as flag bearers until now.

Never watched even a quarter of NBA match. Don't follow basketball either except during few multi sport games.

i think other sports are popular in India like tennis, not sure about basketball 

It's not that cricket is the only followed sport. Though it's the most followed there is a sizeable following for Badminton, Kabaddi, Tennis, TT, Football Wrestling, Athletics, Boxing all forms pro/amateur, Golf, Shooting, Hockey and some more.

 

We have had problems with our basketball federation infighting which hasn't helped and we don't even send our teams to Asian Games and there is only a negligible market for the sport.

 

I personally follow a lot of summer and winter sports from Biathlon to Surfing and Sepaktakraw to Figure Skating.

 

Football, Aquatics, Judo, Gymnastics, Basketball, Volleyball are some of the sports that don't fall in my list.

:KAZ Olga Safronova (Athletics) & Aslanbek Shymbergernov (Boxing)

So happy for Safronova. This will be her last Olympics & she has been at the fore front of Kazakh sprinting. Achievements shouldn’t always be judged by medals but what you have done for the sport in your country. Glad that inspite of Athletics programme starting in the 2nd week, the Kazakh NOC has decided to honour her as a flag bearer.
