Giannis Antetokounmpo has a net worth of $70 million. However, there was a time when he had to share his shoes with his brother.
In 2013, the Milwaukee Bucks made the right choice of drafting Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak has been a success ever since he entered the league.
In his nine seasons in the NBA, Giannis has won an NBA Championship, two MVP awards, and is a six-time All-Star. With averages of 22 points, nine rebounds, and five assists, he is destined for the Hall of Fame.
His performances have been so exceptional, that the Bucks made the decision to hand Antetokounmpo a five-year $230 million contract!

Since joining the NBA, Giannis has worked his way towards becoming one of the richest players in the NBA. So much so, that he has amassed a net worth of $70 million.

Back when he was in Greece, the two-time MVP had to share shoes with his brother Thanasis during basketball practice, as is seen in this trailer below, showing just how much his family has helped him in his career!
