The Milwaukee Bucks star, whose all-star squad lost to LeBron James’ group on a free throw, tweeted the team would donate an extra $100,000 to the charity.Thank you @Aftrschoolmttrs for your energy as you inspired us. It was an honor to play for you. On behalf of our team, we’re going to donate another $100k to support your great work. Keep it up! https://t.
