Giannis Antetokounmpo just became part owner of the Milwaukee Brewers
Mets hesitated to trade blockbuster Kris Bryant on deadline
Giannis is already Milwaukee’s most popular man. Now that he’s part-owner of the Milwaukee Brewers, he may never pay for a drink again.
After leading the Bucks to their first NBA Championship in 50 years, Giannis Antetokounmpo has somehow made himself even more popular in the city of Milwaukee. Jeff Passan report that Giannis has finished talks to become part-owner of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Giannis has played his entire eight-season career with the Bucks, winning two MVPs and a Defensive Player of the Year award. However, two disappointing back-to-back playoff outings had raised questions about whether he would end up calling for a trade. Instead, he made a resounding commitment to the city, signing a five-year, $ 228 million extension in December and then leading the Bucks in that championship run.
Buying even a partial stake in the city’s baseball team is just another sign he’s not going anywhere.
Giannis Could Secure Midwestern Legacy By Buying Milwaukee Brewers
The Brewers are currently 74-48 with a big lead over the Cinncinati Reds. The MLB projection pattern of 538 gives them an 8% chance of winning the World Series this season, behind only the Dodgers, Astros and Rays. Maybe Giannis sees another championship race coming up and just wants to secure a place in the parade.
But even if this season doesn’t even end with a World Series title for the Brewers, the residents of Milwaukee must be feeling very, very optimistic about their sporting future.
