Many sports leagues have halted their seasons due to coronavirus concerns, which means arena employees are left without a job until further notice.
And Giannis Antetokounmpo is taking any worry away from Fiserv Forum employees. The Milwaukee Bucks forward announced Friday on Twitter he would donate $100,000 to the staff.
It’s bigger than basketball! And during this tough time I want to help the people that make my life, my family’s lives and my teammates lives easier. Me and my family pledge to donate $100,000 to the Fiserv Forum staff. We can get through this together! ??

And to make a tough situation better, the Bucks decided to match all of the donations made by players.
