Giannis Antetokounmpo is an NBA champion and a Finals MVP.
So he got the honor of holding both the Larry O’Brien Trophy and the Bill Russell Trophy, and there was such a delightful moment starring the Greek Freak and his hardware when he sat down with reporters after the Milwaukee Bucks’ Game 6 win over the Phoenix Suns to clinch a title.
As you’ll see, he gives a kiss to the O’Brien, then tells the MVP trophy not to get jealous. Just wonderful.
He also had jokes about requesting a trade, and his smile is so wonderful to see. This is the best.
