It could not be otherwise. The Finals MVP of the NBA had to be for Giannis
Antetokounmpo. The Greek was the great protagonist of the series for the title and put the icing on a great tie with one of the biggest exhibits in remembrance.
Anteto ended with 50 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks in the decisive game, a historic performance that allowed the Milwaukee Bucks to proclaim themselves NBA champion for the first time in 50 years. The display of Giannis, just 26 years old, elevates him to the league’s Olympus.
It was the highest score by a player in a decider for the title, equaling that of Bob pettit more than 60 years ago. He did it with everything against, in a Finals that he was about to lose for a knee injury. The Antetokounmpo thing is live history.
Now, he is already an NBA champion, Finals and regular season MVP, as well as the best defender in the league and a five-time All-Star. His career has just taken off and Giannis is already on top.
