Giannis Antetokounmpo 2022: Net worth, salary, and endorsements
Giannis Antetokounmpo or the "Greek Freak" is one of those names to have spurred in the NBA circuit in recent times.
Born in Greece to Nigerian parents, Antetokounmpo began playing basketball for the youth teams of Filathlitikos in Athens. And then he played for their senior team. After that, he declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft in 2013, where he was drafted with the 15th overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks, a team he has been playing since then. Antetokounmpo has been using No 34 jersey and plays in the power forward position.
Over his career so far, he has been an NBA All-Star five times, and was awarded the Most Improved Player. Giannis won two successive MVP trophies in 2019 and 2020 to solidify his status as a star in the league.
But despite individual success, the 'Greek Freak' hadn't captured the NBA title and often faltered in the playoffs. All of it came to a stop in the 2020-21 season with a revamped Bucks side.
Giannis and Co. were one of the most balanced teams and it certainly paid off. With Antetokounmpo leading from the front, the Bucks dominated the playoffs and the Finals. After multiple seasons of being heavily criticized, Giannis certainly silenced his critics as he won his first championship and Final MVP. In 2021-22, he is continuing his top form.
