Giannis Antetokounmpo nearly owned Boston’s TD Garden with his 33-point, 11-rebound performance Thursday night against the Celtics.

Despite that close loss, the Milwaukee Bucks star has the satisfaction of knowing he also now owns a house.

Antetokounmpo bought the River Hills mansionfrom fellow National Basketball Assocation player Mirza Teletovic, and his wife, Maja, according to state property records posted online Friday.

Teletovic, a former Milwaukee Buck, retired from basketball in September because of health issues. He is now president of the Bosnian Basketball Federation.

Antetokounmpo’s new place, with its purchase price of $1.8 million, sounds nice.

“Beyond the sweeping tree lined driveway stands a nearly new 5 bedroom, 7.5 bath custom residence,” according to a listing at

“Come see the striking balance between old world craftsmanship and the features today’s buyer demands.

“The home lends itself to both large gatherings and intimate moments. Amenities include in-ground pool, pool/guest house, home theater, game room, wine cellar, heated garage and workshop. Meticulous and move-in ready,” the listing says.

It would be a great place to celebrate the 2018-’19 NBA championship.
