Giannis Antetokounmpo surprised 15 youth from the Milwaukee Boys & Girls Club “Emerging Leaders” Basketball League on May 22 with autographed jerseys as a “Thank You” to the city of Milwaukee for Antetokounmpo’s Top 10 Ranking this season on DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report. DICK'S also suprised each youth with a $100 shopping spree in the Wauwatosa store.

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is determined to cement his status as one of the most beloved figures in Wisconsin.

Paying homage to one of his own famous tweets, Giannis expressed his love for corn dogs on Monday night — and it should be noted that his fingers are basically the same size, in case there was a question to how massive his hands are.

Counterpoint: corn dogs are gross, but I digress.

Bucks fans will recall the 2014 tweet sent by Antetokounmpo declaring his love for another newly discovered American offering: smoothies. Followed by the same love for his new home.

Perhaps Greece's finest import, Antetokounmpo has acclimated well on the court, too, earning second-team All-NBA and accumulating a national (and international) following. 

Imagine how Wisconsin sports Twitter will respond to his first cream puff.
