Giannis Antetokounmpo put his money in 50 different banks

- by

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo had more banks than letters in his name before Avenue Capital Group founder Marc Lasry stepped in. The National Basketball Association’s two-time most-valuable player had accounts open at 50 different banks, with each of them holding up to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. coverage limit. That shocked Lasry, who co-owns the Milwaukee team.

I’d be cool if Joel Embiid wins MVP. Been hunting the 👑 for 3 years & having his best season. Giannis Antetokounmpo is more than worthy of a 3rd MVP. So many take his brilliance for granted. But the case for Nikola Jokic keeps smacking me in the face like Rick James in the club. – 11:36 PM

Nikola Jokic tonight:
35 PTS
16 REB
6 AST
5 STL
16-24 FG
He passes Giannis and Embiid for the most 30p/15r games this season with 10. pic.twitter.com/6M7G8yVqgb11:32 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Precious Achiuwa was asked who he’d pick for MVP between Embiid, Jokic and Giannis: “I’d rather not answer that question. I’d pick Pascal Siakam.” – 10:26 PM

Marcus Smart is called for his first foul of the game and Giannis Antetokounmpo heads to the free throw line with 1:31 to go with a chance to put the #Bucks ahead. – 9:45 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
What amazing defensive plays by Brown and Smart to block Giannis… and great timing on the turnover to allow Ime to call his use-it-or-lose-it timeout just before the cut off. C’s can catch a rest here and set up an important play – 9:42 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I think Giannis was shocked he had Pritchard on him. – 9:39 PM

Bucks just tried three 3s on that possession. Missed them all, but got the offensive rebound each time and eventually found Giannis Antetokounmpo for a lay-in through contact. – 9:01 PM
Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
Giannis has now gone three straight games without making a first half free throw. Just 0/1 combined against the Mavs, Bulls and Celtics. Some good defense, not a lot of aggression on his part, and not much in the way of calls. – 8:47 PM

Jaylen Brown has 8 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds and a steal for the #Celtics, but the #Bucks lead 36-29 after one. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bobby Portis have eight points apiece. – 7:58 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Sam Hauser was the second reserve in for Boston.
Grant will come back in after this timeout. Looks like Ime may try and match him to Giannis as much as possible. White guarded Giannis the last couple of trips in the halfcourt. – 7:49 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Grant is doing about as well as you could possibly hope for against Giannis. He’s taken a few hits and held his ground. – 7:39 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Grant Williams strips Giannis and goes coast to coast for the layup? Alrighty then – 7:35 PM

More on this storyline

“I spend a lot of time with them explaining where they should invest,” he said of his players on Thursday at the Bloomberg Wealth Summit in New York. “I’m like, Giannis, you can’t be having accounts at 50 different banks. Let me tell you something, if JPMorgan goes under, your little dinky banks are going to go under too. Let me explain what you should buy, you should buy U.S. Treasuries, you should buy this.” -via Bloomberg / April 8, 2022
