Bucks players, including Giannis Antetokounmpo, march with protesters in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A handful of Bucks players joined protesters in Milwaukee on Saturday, June 6 as demonstrations in the name of George Floyd continued for a ninth day. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez, Sterling Brown, and other members of the Bucks met up with protesters near 32nd and Wisconsin.

The players wanted to stand in solidarity with the community; they said even though they are professional athletes they are also athletes of color and want to show their support. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo said he wanted to march specifically because his son is black.
