Giannis Antetokounmpo Buying Stake in MLB's Milwaukee Brewers

After leading the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA championship in 50 years, you could say that Giannis Antetokounmpo owns  the town of Milwaukee. Now, he's taking that one step further, by securing a minority ownership stake in the Milwaukee Brewers of major league baseball. 

The Brewers have established themselves as a solid contender this season, leading the National League's Central Division, and the Greek Freak apparently knows a winner when he sees one. 

Several Brewers actually attended the Bucks championship parade last month, and star outfielder Christian Yelich was thrilled to be a part of it. 

Giannis proved he was invested in the city of Milwaukee before the NBA season, by signing a 5-year, $228 million dollar extension to stay with the Bucks, foregoing free agency. Now, he's investing just a little more in the city's culture. And based on the new contract, he can afford it. 

The Greek Freak is obviously a baseball fan, but after watching him take some swings in the batting cage a couple of years ago, it's safe to say he made the right choice going the basketball route. 

This wouldn't be the first symbiotic relationship among Milwaukee's professional sports teams. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers bought a minority stake in the Bucks some time ago.
