After winning his first ever NBA Championship in 2021, basketball superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is confirmed to be dropping in Fortnite as a playable character. Another legendary figure is dropping hot in Fortnite as Fortnite continues to create a multiverse of characters meeting in their world. Epic Games’ Fortnite has already included anime characters like Naruto, Goku from Dragonball and Deku from My Hero Academia to even Marvel and Star Wars characters that a lot of people waited for. In addition to this, we also have popular culture crossovers nobody thought of such as Travis Scott and Ariana Grande having a big concert inside the game. Now, NBA’s Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to be added to the roster of playable characters in the game.
With the amazing set of characters we’ve already gotten in Chapter Four, we have Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo joining the list. Along with him, there is another NBA superstar that has already dropped in Fortnite back in 2021, which is none other than NBA active legend, LeBron James.
