The Greek Freak is staying with the Milwaukee Bucks.
And so it is, after Giannis Antetokounmpo signed the supermax to stay with the team that drafted him for $228 million dollars (story HERE).
Milwaukee, which is always a favorite target of social media because of their two early playoff exits and being a mid market team, was not exempt this time, with basketball fans taking to social media to voice both their approval and disapproval of the mega deal.
Here are just some of the zingers…
