Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, his family and some of his Milwaukee Bucks teammates joined a protest rally in Milwaukee demanding justice in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing.
Antetokounmpo was joined by his brother Thanasis, his girlfriend Mariah Riddlesprigger and their young son, Liam, and Bucks teammates Sterling Brown, Donte DiVincenzo, and Brook Lopez.
The group wore identical T-shirts with the slogan “I can’t breathe” printed on the front. All the players wore masks and gloves due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Greek player and his brother gave bottles of water and snacks to protesters. Giannis also addressed the crowd of protesters to much applause.
“We want change, we want justice, and that’s why we’re out here. That’s what we’re going to do today. That’s why I’m going to march with you,” Antetokounmpo said.
“I want my kid to grow up here in Milwaukee, and not to be scared to walk in the streets. I don’t want my kid to have hate in his heart.”
