Some said it was an impossible mission, but Giannis did it: he became NBA champion with the Bucks! Necessarily carried by the euphoria of the title, the Greek Freak has also passed a message strong to all the superteams, and more particularly the Nets!
In February 2020, during an apparently banal interview, James Harden declared without taking tweezers that Giannis Antetokounmpo did not have the slightest distinctive talent and that he was only running, dunking, and taking advantage of his large size to dominate the league… How crazy these words seem at a time when the Bearded Man is on his couch and the Greek Freak celebrates his title of NBA champion!
Moreover at 26 years old, Giannis has just completed his record with the only two titles he was missing since he was also elected MVP of the Finals, thanks in particular to an anthology match 6 ! 50 points, 14 rebounds, 5 blocks… The Greek went for this ring with style and in front of his audience, which should make the success even tastier.
After the meeting, he could not help but look back on the last seasons, where many observers told him that it was impossible to win the title in a small market like Milwaukee… The Greek Freak persisted, pushed its leaders to strengthen the workforce, so it can afford to drop a huge tackle to the superteams!

It’s easy to win in the NBA… It’s easy to join another superstar and win a title. It’s easy ! I could have signed to a superteam, just do my part of the job and become a champion. But that’s the hard way to win a ring, and we did it! We fucking did it boy!
How not to see in these words a small tackle for James Harden, who did everything in his power to be traded to the Nets at the start of the season? Giannis Antetokounmpo can be eliminated by the Big 3 of Brooklyn during the next 3 or 4 seasons, never one of their title will have the flavor of that won by the Bucks! And then we must not forget the Lakers and their hyperactivity in the buyout market!
Giannis Antetokounmpo could retire today, he would be considered by all as a legend thanks to his exceptional track record! And he filled his trophy cabinet without the help of another superstar!
