    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.

    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.

    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.

      @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.

      @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.

      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’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.

      @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.
