NBA and Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is set to become part of the ownership group of Major League Baseball team Milwaukee Brewers by purchasing a minority stake, according to US media reports on Friday.

After scoring 50 points in Game 6 of the Finals and laying his hand on his first NBA title with the Bucks last season, Antetokounmpo is enjoying a relaxing yet happening break.  

First, he visited his native Greece, the Wisconsin State Fair, Las Vegas for NBA summer league action, and now he’s joining the ownership group fronted by New York investor Mark Attanasio, whose purchase of the Brewers was approved in 2005.  

“We are honored to have Giannis join our team of Milwaukee Brewers investors,” Attanasio said in a team release, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. “Giannis is a great athlete, a world champion and a true local hero with international renown.”

Antetokounmpo becomes the first new individual investor added to the Brewers ownership group since Attanasio took over.

“The city of Milwaukee means so much to me,” Antetokounmpo said. “I am honored to be joining the Brewers ownership group to further my commitment and dedication to this great community. I take great pride in my city and I’m excited about what we can build together.”

Meanwhile, during the press conference, describing his connection with the city of Milwaukee, the 26-year-old said, “Milwaukee made me who I am today. It made me a better person, a better man. Milwaukee invested a lot in me, and I want to invest back into the City of Milwaukee…I just love Milwaukee.”

On the basketball front, Antetokounmpo signed a $228 million “supermax” extension before the 2020-21 basketball season, a deal that could keep him in a Bucks jersey for the next five seasons.
