Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo tweets at Blazers’ Damian Lillard for Hulu meeting
Hulu is making major in-roads with the NBA. Joel Embiid and Damian Lillard both starred in their own hilarious commercials for Hulu, promoting the live sports the streaming service offers, and now Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has chimed in on the situation.
Both ads revolved around Embiid and Lillard ‘selling out’ to promote the brand, and now another superstar wants in on the action.
The Bucks star tweeted at Lillard, asking to get a meeting set up. In Lillard’s commercial, the Portland Trail Blazers guard is seen getting a tattoo that says ‘Hulu has live sports.’

Not long after, Lillard responded, letting Antetokounmpo know that he’d be happy to help.
Of course. I got you!

Hulu’s Twitter account saw a window, and quickly jumped in.

The NBA is unrivaled when it comes to social media, and this is just the latest example of the greatness that is #NBATwitter.
Antetokounmpo has been playing at an MVP level this season for the Bucks, and has broad marketing appeal. The league has actively sought to promote him, and brands are clearly beginning to take note.
As his star only continues to grow, he’ll be one of the most in-demand athletes out there when it comes to endorsements.
If this interaction is to be believed, it looks like Antetokounmpo could be getting his own Hulu commercial pretty soon. Stay tuned.
