Antetokounmpo bros will co-coach NBA's All-Star Celebrity Game
Giannis, Thanasis and Alex Antetokounmpo — three-fourths of the affectionately known Antetokounbros and all members of the Milwaukee Bucks organization — have achieved a lot together and as individual athletes, to say the least. The trio will add to their basketball pedigree at the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City when they collectively coach one of the star-studded teams in the always entertaining Celebrity Game.
The squad they'll coach runs deep with Milwaukee connections and hoops prowess. Marquette legend and NBA great Dwyane Wade served as honorary captain of the creatively named Team Dwyane. Among his selections of basketball stars and pop-culture icons — including singer/actress Janelle Monáe, rapper 21 Savage and Peloton coach Alex Toussaint — was Milwaukee native and WNBA all-star Arike Ogunbowale.
Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn will help the Antetokounmpos with their decision making. They'll take on a team selected by captain and Utah Jazz owner Ryan Smith, and coached by basketball hall of famer Lisa Leslie, rapper Fat Joe and baseball star Alex Bregman.
The Celebrity Game tips off at 6 p.m. CT next Friday, Feb. 17, on ESPN. Check out the full rosters here.
