NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has a fan base that extends well beyond the Milwaukee city limits. It turns out that actor and comedian Jack Black is a big supporter, and he made a song for the second time NBA MVP.

Tenacious D, a band made up of Black and fellow comedian Kage Gass, were performing in Milwaukee when Black chose to release a new song in honor of Antetokounmpo. Black made it clear that he and Gass are Los Angeles Lakers fans, but they have a shared admiration for Antetokounmpo.

“You know me and Kage, we’re Lakers for life, but there’s one player, it doesn’t matter what team he’s on, we [expletive] love him,’ said Black. ‘Do you know why? He’s incredible.”

After leading the money to an NBA title in 2021, Antetokounmpo came back with another strong season in 2021-22. He averaged 29.9 points, 11.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game before leading the Bucks to the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Those efforts earned Antetokounmpo its first All-NBA honor for the fourth straight season. He was also named to the NBA’s 75th anniversary team and went on to attend the sixth consecutive All-Star game of his career.

Antetokounmpo and the Bucks will once again enter 2022-23 with great expectations, but they will get a little extra support from Hollywood.
