Giannis Antetokounmpo to appear in Madden 21
Antetokounmpo's brothers, Thanasis and Kostas, are also in the game
From NBA Twitter reports
Two Kia MVPs. A Kia Defensive Player of the Year Award. Multiple All-Star, All-Defensive and All-NBA nods. And now, a spot in Madden 21.
Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, the reigning Kia MVP, added that last accolade to his list of accomplishments on Thursday, per ESPN’s Eric Woodyard. Antetokounmpo and his brothers, Thanasis and Kostas, are the first NBA players to appear in the NFL video game in its “The Yard” mode.
In addition, Giannis Antetokounmpo will be featured in Madden 21’s “Superstar KO” mode.

This is not the first time Giannis Antetokounmpo has been a headliner of sorts for a video game as he was the cover athlete for NBA 2K19. Additionally, the Bucks have a bit of an NFL tie as Green Bay Packers quarterback and former NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers became a limited owner in the team back in 2018.
