Giannis' epic Finals performance caps Bucks 50-year championship drought
In a season that delivered uncertainty, there was still uncertain about the former two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
But the season happened amid the COVID-19 pandemic and Antetokounmpo cemented himself in the lore of just not all-time NBA big men but himself as perhaps an all-time great.
Last night, Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks completed a four-game comeback against Devin Booker, Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns to win their first NBA Finals since 1971.
And at All In Autographs, we’re celebrating the Antetokounmpo and the Bucks first championship in half a century.
Despite falling behind 0-2 in the 2021 NBA Finals, “The Greek Freak” put the Bucks on his back and rallied them to four-straight wins and played phenomenally. He also earned the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award for his efforts.
He becomes the 11th player in league history to have won a regular-season MVP, a Finals MVP and an All-Star Game MVP (which he won this year). He and Michael Jordan are the only other players to win those awards as well as the Defensive Player of the Year Award.
He, Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon are the only three players in league history to win league MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and Finals MVP.
Antetokounmpo still remains humbled and his considered one of the most pleasant “superstars” in the league.
“I never I thought I’m going to 26 years old, with my team playing in the NBA Finals.”
