Fresh off a historic win leading the Milwaukee Bucks to their first championship in half a century, Giannis Antetokounmpo is flying high.
Scoring a total of 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks as their superstar forward, Antetokounmpo — who lovingly earned the nickname “Greek Freak” — gave a legendary performance Tuesday night that up until now, only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson had ever done.
But it was a two-year-old Kobe Bryant prophecy that has the internet going wild.
In a June 2019 tweet, the late Bryant predicted that Antekounmpo would not only earn another MVP title but was destined for a championship in no time.
“My man….M.V.P. Greatness. 🙌🏾💪🏾 Next up: Championship. #MambaMentality,” Bryant wrote.
The Bucks ultimately beat the Phoenix Suns 105-98 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
And the Greek-born athlete has a sweet pad to celebrate in.
Located in the upscale River Hills, Wisconsin neighborhood, the home is made up of six bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, spanning a massive 9,900 square feet.
Antetokounmpo, 26, first bought the property in 2018 for $1.8 million — two years after signing a four-year $100 million extension with the Bucks in 2016.
Pegged as “luxury living,” the home features expansive rooms with an open concept kitchen and a family room that leads to the backyard, according to the listing.
On the main level is a vaulted ceiling sunroom that boasts a two-way fireplace. The primary suite features two large walk-in closets, an expansive spa-bath with a walk-in shower and a separate tub.
Upstairs are five additional bedrooms and a bonus room with a loft.
Amenities include a wet bar, game room, home theatre, wine cellar, fitness room, a pool and a separate garage.
An added feature includes a heated garage.
Antetokounmpo was eligible for the NBA draft in 2013, where he was selected as the first-round pick by the Bucks. He made his NBA debut on October 13, 2013 at the age of 18.
