Giannis Antetokounmpo shared an emotional encounter with his Minnesota Timberwolves counterpart Karl-Anthony Towns, after the Milwaukee Bucks’ 139-112 win last Tuesday.
Towns is reeling from the tragic loss of six of his family members, including his mother, last year due to coronavirus. He himself was also afflicted with the virus.
Regarding the death of Towns’ mother, Antetokounmpo commented that he had a similar situation four years ago when his father, to whom he was very close, passed away.
