Giannis donates $100,000 to Fiserv Forum staff after NBA suspends season

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Although the NBA has suspended its season over the growing coronavirus threat, that doesn't mean league MVP Giannis Antetokoumnpo has forgotten his home at Fiserv forum.

The Milwaukee Bucks all-star forward in a tweet today announced he would donate $100,000 to the arena's staff.

"I want to help the people that make my life, my family’s lives and my teammates’ lives easier,” Antetokoumnpo wrote.

The NBA has suspended its season “until further notice” after a Utah Jazz player tested positive Wednesday for the coronavirus, a move that came only hours after the majority of the league’s owners were leaning toward playing games without fans in arenas.
