NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo now owns a stake in the Milwaukee Brewers, making him the first new individual investor added to the team's ownership group since principal owner Mark Attanasio acquired controlling interest in 2005. As he joined the Brewers at a press conference on Friday to announce the agreement, Antetokounmpo said this is a dream come true, ESPN reported.

"Man, this is unbelievable,'' the Milwaukee Bucks All-Star said. "This is a dream come true for a kid from Sepolia, Athens, Greece, born from immigrant parents. I could have never imagined I would be in this position.''

Attanasio jokingly said the 6-foot-11 forward might want to tryout at first base for the Brewers.

"We are honored to have Giannis join our team of Milwaukee Brewers investors," the owner said in a statement. "Giannis is a great athlete, a world champion, and a true local hero with international renown."

Antetokounmpo, who led the Bucks to their first NBA title in 50 years one month ago, hopes to become an even bigger part of the city after the latest investment.

"Milwaukee made me who I am today,'' he said. "It made me a better person. This is basically my home. I've become a father here. I've become a leader here. I've become a champion here, and I want to be involved."

The basketball star was competing in the NBA playoff bubble at Walt Disney World last year when he started thinking about acquiring ownership of a pro sports franchise. Antetokounmpo then made an agreement with the Brewers in May. But the two parties kept the agreement quiet because they didn't want to distract from the Bucks' playoff run and the early part of the Brewers' season.

“Thank God that He allowed me and blessed me to be in this position because without him, I wouldn’t be here. At the same time, I thank Mark for giving me the opportunity to join their ownership group, to learn from him," the NBA champion said on Friday. "This is an amazing organization. I’m very, very happy to be a part of it.”

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the All-Star said he doesn't know much about baseball, but he's eager to learn as much as possible, as soon as possible.

“I’ve been to two Milwaukee Brewers games. I enjoy it, I enjoy the competition. Obviously, growing up in Europe, there’s not a lot of baseball over there. When I was introduced to baseball, I was 18. It was the first day I came to Milwaukee," he said. “Right now I just want to learn. This is my first time doing this. Always, even when I started playing basketball, I wanted to learn. I wanted to be the best in what I do."
