Last month Giannis Antetokounmpo moved even non-Bucks fans to tears with his emotional MVP acceptance speech. And now the city will have a chance to celebrate the honor with him.
The Milwaukee Bucks and Nike will host a celebration honoring his MVP award on Sunday, July 14, from 2-5 p.m. on the plaza at Fiserv Forum, "giving fans an opportunity to see Antetokounmpo presented with the MVP trophy and to check out his recently-released first signature shoe, the Nike Air Zoom Freak 1," according to a press release.
Antetokounmpo will be presented with the MVP trophy by youth from a local Boys & Girls Club. The event will also include appearances by the Bucks Entertainment Network, DJs and a headliner to be announced before the event. There will also be food and beverages for sale.
"The House of Hoops Freakmobile will be on site for fans to purchase Antetokounmpo Nike merchandise, with a limited number of his signature shoes available for purchase. The Bucks Pro Shop inside Fiserv Forum will also be open during the event," according to a press release.
