Giannis Antetokounmpo has been mesmerizing fans with his throwback inside play. After being picked 15th in the 2013 draft, the Bucks made sure he developed into an MVP-styled player. This play has helped him win two MVPs, a championship, and a Finals MVP. He was in the MVP conversation last season too. Apart from being one of the best players in the league, he has also done his part as a brother.

Giannis’ love for his brothers is well-documented. No matter where he goes, he is usually in their company. The recent China tour was a testament to the love between these brothers. In his journey, the Greek-Nigerian phenom has always kept his siblings attached to him.

In another major decision, his brother Alex Antetokounmpo signed with the Bucks and made waves on the internet. However, as per the Milwaukee Bucks beat reporter, the team isn’t going to keep him, instead; they are giving him an offer. If he stays with Bucks’ G-League affiliate, Wisconsin Herd, for 60 days, he can make a bonus worth $75,000.

The team signed him so that they could offer him this deal. This isn’t the first time that the two parties agreed to such an offering, it is a repeat of last season. Last season, the 6’8” Forward played around 22 minutes for the Franchise and averaged 5.8 points and 3.1 rebounds. 

He is not the only brother who has been blessed by the Bucks.

Thanasis has received support too

Three years older than Giannis, Thanasis Antetokounmpo has been part of the Bucks since 2019. He was the 51st pick in the 2014 draft by the New York Knicks. While his brother didn’t influence his entry point in the league, he has helped him sustain here.

With the Bucks, the eldest brother has played 162 games and while he doesn’t have impressive numbers, he still has managed a roster spot.

The brothers may never earn a lucrative five-year $228 million deal like The Greek Freak. However, they still are building a sound business profile. They are all going to be the investors in the Los Angeles Golf Club team, a part of the 2024-slated TGL Golf tournament.
