He did it without creating a super team. I love it. Did i think they had a chance over the suns?, nope but CP3 didn't show up and the fire Booker came in with burnt out. Well deserved win for Giannis and congratulations to the bucks.
After the game, the Bucks superstar took a shot at, well, basically every other star in the NBA, when he said: “I could go to a super team and just do my part and win a championship. But this is the hard way to do it, and we did it. We fucking did it.”
Antetokounmpo provided an iconic NBA Finals moment when he pulled up to Game 3 wearing all-black Air Force 1s, sending basketball and sneaker Twitter into a frenzy. Triple black Air Force 1s are, of course, famously a meme in the sneaker community, most often associated with an aggressive, criminal energy. Basically, if someone is wearing black Air Force 1s, they’re not fucking around. And neither was Giannis, who ended up averaging 37 points across all six games and winning four games in a row en route to his first NBA Finals MVP and title.
Incredibly, the Greek Freak scored 50 points in the final game — having already become only the second player ever to score 40 and rebound 10 in back-to-back Finals games earlier in the series — going 1/6 from beyond the arc and only missing two of his 19 free-throws. Giannis had previously shot a measly 56 percent from the line, making his free-throw performance in the series-clinching game extra noteworthy.
