Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo hilariously talks to Finals MVP trophy
Following their triumphant NBA Finals win over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo made the rounds with the media to answer questions amid the frenzied celebration.
The Finals MVP was coming off a 50 point, series clinching performance which netted him not only the NBA title, but the Finals MVP as well. Afterwards, the Bucks’ all-world player was having some fun by jokingly talking to the Finals MVP trophy.

Kissing the NBA Finals trophy only to tell the Finals MVP trophy not to get jealous is quite the comedic move from Antetokounmpo.
The Bucks outlasted the Suns, 105-98 to win four straight games in the series and clinch the title.
The “Greek Freak” was brilliant as he was most of the series, pouring in 50 points to go along with 14 rebounds and 5 blocks. By far the most shocking aspect of the game itself, Antetokounmpo went 17-19 from the free-throw line. And in a game where the Bucks had to hang on to win by 7, every single one of those free-throws mattered. Somehow, after struggling from the line all postseason long, Milwaukee’s superstar was able to convert over and over again on the biggest stage in the biggest game of his career.
With two MVP’s already on the resume and now a Finals MVP and an NBA title as well, Antetokounmpo is quickly climbing the charts as one of the all-time greats to ever do it. Scoring 50 points in a title clinching game sure helps as well. As a result, the celebration is on for the Bucks.
