    This just a thought. Jrue Holiday came to a team with GIANNIS AND K. MIDDLETON. BOTH ARE ALL-star max players. So is he talking about Jrue too???

      Why is it cringey? Cuz unlike others, he just tries to be himself instead of like a cardboard cutout of what society thinks is cool like many others? Or is it his accent? I'm just curious.

    He had 47 points in the last 19 seconds, they gave him 50 with 1 free throw. LOL

    Just wanna point out, after game 4, Nick Wright correctly predicted the bucks winning games 5 and 6 and that Giannis would now be known as the best player in the NBA.

    It’s cool how global basketball is now. Giannis finals mvp, Jokic reg season mvp, Embiid reg season mvp runner up. It’s a team sport and the foreign players are better trained in the team aspect. It will be interesting if the US team doesn’t win gold in Tokyo for this very reason.

    man it's great to see a star stick it out and win with the team that drafted and the players they drafted... no begging guys to join him for a super team or him leaving to join one...love to see it...just wait till this guy can hit freebies on the reg and develops a 3 pt shot, it'll be a wrap for the rest of the league

    If you hate Giannis for winning this ring, I'm convinced you hate the American dream of working hard to be great. Dude came all the way from Greece, came from nothing, over to the US after being drafted by the Bucks, worked his way into a starting role, overcame the loss of his father, put in more work to develop his skills, and most importantly remained loyal to the city and team that drafted him and did it the right way instead of trying to team up with multiple All-Stars to build an unbeatable team. No easy ring chansing for him. He did it the way he wanted to and he can now say he's an NBA Champion. Dude has a HOF resume at ONLY 26 years old, and he still has so many years left to build on it. THIS is the type of storybook ending and representation the NBA, and sports as a whole, should want. A hard-working, humble, loyal, and determined guy on the top of Mt. Everest. Congrats to Giannis and the city of Milwakuee. First title in 50 years.

    They laughed at his jumpshot, laughed that he resigned in Milwaukee, laughed that he couldn't shoot free throws, laughed that he got stopped by a Miami Heat wall, but he kept coming back and getting better and ignored the haters. Congrats! You can't hate on that. He got it done!

      @Akshaj Molukutla Stop the excuses… Lebron created a big 3 in Cleveland the 2nd time around and only won in 2016 because he cried to the refs to suspend Draymond Greene Get out to feelings boy 🐷

    • Brent T
      Brent T

      @Akshaj Molukutla dude just saying players could have signed with lebron but a lot of players don’t want to, hence why he left.

    • Akshaj Molukutla
      Akshaj Molukutla

      @Leoni Lebron's second best player on those early Cavs teams was Mo Williams. Giannis's was Khris Middleton. LeBron came back and took the Cavs to 4 straight finals. 5 in total.

    • Leoni
      Leoni

      @Akshaj Molukutla its not like he stayed and they drafted and traded for kyrie and love. He signed after they stock piled a bunch of 1st picks and got kyrie. These guys developed at the bucks the past 8 years. Its different. Its not quite the same what giannis and LeBron did.

    • Akshaj Molukutla
      Akshaj Molukutla

      LeBron came back to win. 3-1 too. He even carried some of the worst finals teams to a ring. His front office was horrible and didn't surround him with the necessary pieces.

    It is nice to have superstar, that is not concerned about his brand or any of that outside noise. He does not even want to be friends with players in other teams and i respect that, because i grew up with 90`s basketball.

    The man can literally do everything that a team needs him to do and is no longer afraid of the big moments. Truly inspiring to see this guy getting better every series and game of the playoffs. It’s crazy to think that if he hadn’t blocked that 2vs1 lob in game 4, not hustle down to catch jrue’s pass in game 5, or missed even a couple more freethrows tonight, we might be seeing game 7 or suns winning the chip.

    "He can't shoot midrange, can't shoot 3, he can't shoot free throws, he can only dunk" and yet they still cannot stop him putting historical numbers This championship is bigger than just winning the NBA title. coming from Nigeria to Greece without nothing just to become the most dominant player since Shaq. A true warrior, champion and well deserved Finals MVP

      He didn't come from Nigeria to Greece. Get your facts straight. He was born in Greece from Nigerian parents. That's why first name is Greek. He does not even speak the Nigerian language. He only knows Greek and now English.

    • flowerz

      @Abhilash Singh yea the thing is he actually has a serviceable midrange jumper now and he clearly wants to shoot more 3s which is pretty scary going forward. Now he’s gonna have his confidence up Middleton also showed he is a beast and has a clutch gene. So bucks look pretty scary going forward imo.

    Giannis is, without question, the new face of the NBA. This was one of the best post-championship interviews ever. He was humble, passionate, grateful, emotional, funny, and wise with so little effort. From where he started to where is now is one of the greatest stories in sports.

      @Colby Martinez you do realize the king nickname is just a marketing play on his name right? Idk how old you are but back then, player nicknames were a thing, so Nike used that as the marketing campaign. Air Jordan, black mamba, the diesel and on and on 😂
