Team Giannis donating another $100,000 to After School Matters charity

NBA All-Star Game, Team Giannis

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo says his All-Star team is going to donate another $100,000 to the After School Matters charity they were playing for during the NBA All-Star Game. The charity was already set to get $100,000 based on the All-Star Game results.

After School Matters is a Chicago-based non-profit organization devoted to providing innovative out-of-school programs for teenagers. The teen population that After School Matters serves is almost entirely minority and living at or below the poverty level:

Former Chicago Bulls star and current Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose donated $1 million to After School Matters back in 2014.

After School Matters was founded more than two decades ago by Chicago’s former First Lady, Maggie Daley. Since then, it has served more than 200,000 teens. Mellody Hobson, President of Chicago-based Ariel Investments, became Board Chair in 2012 following Mrs. Daley’s passing.

Team Giannis fell to Team LeBron in the All-Star Game. Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis hit the free throw to give Team LeBron 157 points, the target number for the winning team.

Just like last season, the Bucks have the best record in the NBA. Antetokounmpo could very well win his second straight MVP award, too. He’s averaging 30.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 61.4 percent from the free-throw line.
