A long way from selling goods on the streets of Athens as a child and sharing a pair of sneakers with his brothers, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is now worth an estimated $60-$70 million.
He was 11th on Forbes’ 2023 list of The World’s Highest-Paid Athletes with $87.6 million in estimated income from his $42.6 million salary and another $45 million from endorsements, said Business Insider.
He won back-to-back league MVP honors in 2019 and in 2020, when he was also the Defensive Player of the Year and as a raw teen when he was drafted signed an $8,615,141 entry-level contract with the Bucks in 2013.
And his shrewd investments in a range of companies from health to clothing and others has racked it up, which he spends wisely – not forgetting those mean streets in the Greek capital – and in philanthropic efforts too.
He signed an extension with the Bucks in October 2023. The three-year, $177 million deal begins in 2025 and will keep The Greek Freak in Milwaukee through at least the 2026-2027 season, already making $234 million in his salary.
