MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee's reigning MVP is stepping in to help Fiserv Forum workers who are currently out of work due to the suspension of the NBA's season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is donating $100,000 to Fiserv Forum staff, he announced on Twitter.

"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!" the Greek Freak said.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love made a similar gesture Thursday, donating $100,000 to arena staff in that city.
