Milwaukee forward Giannis Adetokumbo is the highest-paid European player in the NBA according to a list published by Forbes magazine.  In our weekly section we will talk about the Greek Freak and his money.

Adetokumbo was the only European in the Top 10 highest-paid players in the NBA. The Greek, who ranks 7th on the list, received $ 43.2 million for the 2018/2019 season. The basketball player will receive 24.2 million under a contract with the club, and another 19 million – from advertising.

Antetokounmpo is following in the footsteps of Michael Jordan and LeBron James, becoming the face of many promotional products. Like these two, he is the face of Nike advertising. His first pair of shoes became a hit before it appeared on the market.

Yannis is not limited to sneakers. From Tissot cars to Kronos Foods, he is one of the NBA’s best-selling players. The 25-year-old has a charm that makes him natural in front of the camera. It is no coincidence that he is always among the best players who people choose in the game of NBA All-stars.

But this was not always the case. Now Giannis plays in the best league in the world, he has citizenship and thoughts of what to eating tomorrow no longer visit him. The story of Giannis Adetokunbo is a story of striving, overcoming, and fighting hatred.

“I’m just careful with my money because I know the value of money,” said the Milwaukee forward.

Of course, the Bucks star has a large fleet of cool cars, including GMC, Range Rover, and a sporty BMW i8 worth $ 150,000. Another BMW premium class Greek Freak bought for his brother. “Life is too short to drive boring cars !!” – written on Facebook of Giannis.

He lives in the best suburban area of Milwaukee. His 10,000-square-foot home is worth $ 1.8 million.

Despite such spending, Adetokumbo will remain the guy who once pulled a pair of discarded Caron Butler shoes out of the trash and said, “What are you doing? These are good shoes!”. The same Giannis, who, as Brandon Knight said, will bring 6 or 7 boxes of free food from the hall to his house to save money.

This is the guy who jokes about journalists. Once a journalist from The Athletics published a new article about “Milwaukee” and posted a link on Twitter with a mention of the Greek forward. Adetokumbo replied to the author: “I will not pay $ 6.99 to read this article. I already told you.” You can call it cheap. We will call it reasonable and not wasteful.
