The Greek Freak is here to stay for the next five years.
Giannis Antetokounmpo announced the news on social media, saying he's signed a contract extension for the next five years. The Athletic reports it's worth $228.2 million.
The internet immediately began to share its excitement -- and relief -- at the news.
Here are some of the best ones we've seen:

The speculation stops.
The return to a championship run continues.
A mega uberstar turned down chances to leave Milwaukee.
Giannis IS home.
The Milwaukee Brewers also hopped on the congratulatory train:

Thank you so much! You have no idea what this means to a fan base in a small market like this! Mad respect for the loyalty and commitment!! Let’s go get a ring!— David Soda (@Sodes34) December 15, 2020
Giannis I love you with all my heart. Milwaukee loves you. Wisconsin loves you. Bucks fans around the world love you. ❤️— Kyle Hoffenbecker (@KHoffenbecker) December 15, 2020
It's always been clear that Giannis loves Milwaukee, thanks to his interactions with fans and social media posts.
Back in September, Giannis shared photos from the 2020 season on Instagram and said Milwaukee has "the best fans in the world." He even said he was looking forward to next season.
Prior to signing the contract, Giannis had also said in several interviews that he loved Milwaukee and wasn't planning on leaving. We must say, though, it feels pretty good to have that official.
