Antetokounmpo follows the model of Kansas City Chiefs strategist Patrick mahomes: small market star investing in the local baseball franchise, which Mahomes did by joining the Kansas City Royals‘property group.
Antetokounmpo’s decision to join the city’s baseball team comes a month after helping the Bucks win Milwaukee’s first NBA title in 50 years.
His commitment to the Bucks organization was cemented when the two-time MVP signed a five-year, $ 228 million supermax extension with the team in December.
The Brewers also seem like a good investment. The team holds an 8½-game lead early in the National League center on Friday night and has won four of its last five games.
