LeBron James’ heartfelt message to Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo for winning NBA Finals

LeBron James Giannis Antetokounmpo Bucks Lakers NBA Finals

Giannis Antetokounmpo is now an NBA champion. The Milwaukee Bucks have climbed the mountaintop and have been crowned the best team in the world for the 2021-22 season. They did this all on the wide shoulders of their franchise player.

The immense burden and flashes of greatness the Bucks star displayed was evident all series, and caught the attention of someone who’s been there and done that – LeBron James. King James gave the Greek Freak his flowers and congratulations within the confines of single tweet.

Giannis Antetokounmpo stayed loyal to the Milwaukee Bucks despite every team in the league willing to poach him onto their roster. He signed the lengthy extension before his final contract year even began, quelling doubts of his departure and shielding his team from distractions surrounding any potential departure.

In some ways, Giannis’ loyalty became a key component in this team, with his commitment to the Bucks definitely infectious towards the rest of the roster.

The best part for Bucks fans is that this team isn’t going anywhere. Giannis is guaranteed signed until 2024-25, with a player option for 2025-26. The earliest of their big three who could opt out would be Khris Middleton, who has a player option all the way in 2023-24.

Giannis Antetokounmpo showed the world what he could do, and he’s only just getting started.
