Even though his team lost the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, Giannis Antetokounmpo made sure his charity was taken care of this weekend.
The Milwaukee Bucks star and the rest of Team Giannis have pledged $100,000 to After School Matters:
Thank you @Aftrschoolmttrs for your energy as you inspired us. It was an honor to play for you. On behalf of our team, we’re going to donate another $100k to support your great work. Keep it up! https://t.co/oJr3bUZXc9

Antetokounmpo chose to represent the Chicago charity in the mid-season showcase, earning $100,000 from the NBA after winning the second quarter of the game. Team LeBron secured $400,000 for Chicago Scholars after its 157-155 win, via K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports.
The latest donations ensured After School Matters will receive $200,000 despite the on-court result.
Let’s also recap some of the best moments that make me smile from All-Star weekend:
