Fikrlar

  • haha I'm happy for this young man! he balled his heart out!

  • " have to enjoy this moment, we might not have another one"..............god honest truth....tmrw is not promised today

  • This just a thought. Jrue Holiday came to a team with GIANNIS AND K. MIDDLETON. BOTH ARE ALL-star max players. So is he talking about Jrue too???

  • Did Malaysia get their question off? Lol

  • Don’t get me wrong he’s a great guy on and off the court but I don’t know.. hearing him talk can be cringing to me lol. Much respect giannis

    • Don't get me wrong but you make me cringe!

    • Why is it cringey? Cuz unlike others, he just tries to be himself instead of like a cardboard cutout of what society thinks is cool like many others? Or is it his accent? I'm just curious.

  • He had 47 points in the last 19 seconds, they gave him 50 with 1 free throw. LOL

  • 13:00 for all parents out there, this is what you bleed for.

  • This dude is the second coming of Mike Olowakandi.

  • Just wanna point out, after game 4, Nick Wright correctly predicted the bucks winning games 5 and 6 and that Giannis would now be known as the best player in the NBA.

  • 1:25 he won cus of family🤝

  • This is the first time that an athlete truly made me believe that we all can be successful in what we do.

  • loll is ESPN bootlegging this? why is this on zoom lol

  • Champion

  • 9 dislike are sun fans

  • Look at Giannis man, so inspirational

  • A well-deserved Championship 👏 Congrats Greek Freak

  • There's no such thing as the best player in the world in the NBA. You have the best players.

  • The 9 Suns fans who disliked 🤣

  • It’s cool how global basketball is now. Giannis finals mvp, Jokic reg season mvp, Embiid reg season mvp runner up. It’s a team sport and the foreign players are better trained in the team aspect. It will be interesting if the US team doesn’t win gold in Tokyo for this very reason.

  • E ellas ellas ellas ellas

  • I can already see it. SPACE JAM 3. Gianni's has to go back in time and win every award before Before the giant evil catipillers eat his family

  • Let’s not overlook Giannis thanking the reporters for doing their job

  • so I'm guessing he is going to resign with the bucks

  • The most honest and real interview.

  • This is the way

  • Love this guy so much respect congrats

  • Let's be honest, who gives/gave you more useful & meaningful nuggets? Giannnis or Shaq?

  • James Harden kicking rocks right now 😭

  • man it's great to see a star stick it out and win with the team that drafted and the players they drafted... no begging guys to join him for a super team or him leaving to join one...love to see it...just wait till this guy can hit freebies on the reg and develops a 3 pt shot, it'll be a wrap for the rest of the league

  • You gotta love this guy I don't care if you're a bucks fan NBA fan hes just a stand up guy an a easy guy to like an route 4!

  • Such a legend

  • To think this guy's biggest weakness became his biggest strength in this series he shot over 90% from the free-throw line after having that be his struggle leading up to the finals

  • Perfect example of a champion

  • I cried for him tears of joy. Respect for the Greek Freak and his team

  • If you hate Giannis for winning this ring, I'm convinced you hate the American dream of working hard to be great. Dude came all the way from Greece, came from nothing, over to the US after being drafted by the Bucks, worked his way into a starting role, overcame the loss of his father, put in more work to develop his skills, and most importantly remained loyal to the city and team that drafted him and did it the right way instead of trying to team up with multiple All-Stars to build an unbeatable team. No easy ring chansing for him. He did it the way he wanted to and he can now say he's an NBA Champion. Dude has a HOF resume at ONLY 26 years old, and he still has so many years left to build on it. THIS is the type of storybook ending and representation the NBA, and sports as a whole, should want. A hard-working, humble, loyal, and determined guy on the top of Mt. Everest. Congrats to Giannis and the city of Milwakuee. First title in 50 years.

  • The bucks are gonna be scary next year when Durant joins them! Haha

  • Do you know what is easier than being in a Super team, is is winning a championship with every other team hurt,so he had it easy to win a championship, but he won't be back thats for sure .

  • We need a whole giannis doc

  • Stunt on them!!! Did it the hard way! lol 🏆

  • Young legend

  • I’m really happy for him now his little brother ain’t the only one with a championship trophy 🏆 🏆

  • Super deserving Title win for the Buck’s and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s definitely IMO the new face of the NBA

  • Never seen a Superstar more REAL!!!

  • 7:30 Giannis is calling out Durant😂😂

  • Giannis a real one. No wonder he's destined for greatness.

  • Anyone seen Kendrick Perkins? Does he even work here anymore?

  • ESPN: It's great for the NBA that Giannis stayed in the city that drafted him! Also ESPN: WHERE SHOULD DAMIAN LILLARD DEMAND A TRADE TO IN ORDER TO FORM A SUPERTEAM???

  • Its a Kardashian Curse. Thank Bookers girlfriend 🤧🤧😂😂😂

  • This is the best possible outcome for the NBA this year.

  • The 7 Dislikes are Suns fans

  • He said I know I’m a role model…

  • M.V.P. Giannis it finally happens!

  • He is the only player with a chance to be the greatest ever

  • The Antetekumbo Boys are champions. Last year his brother, now him. Eat your heart out Manning Brothers.

    • @Spec I hope they play the Lakers opening night so all 3 of them would be there during the ring ceremony.

    • And his other brother who is also on this Bucks team

  • Giannis holding those trophy’s like twin newborns is everything right now !! 😂😂

  • Breaking News: Kevin Durant asking for trade to Milwaukee!

  • Giannis took a shot at Durant

  • They laughed at his jumpshot, laughed that he resigned in Milwaukee, laughed that he couldn't shoot free throws, laughed that he got stopped by a Miami Heat wall, but he kept coming back and getting better and ignored the haters. Congrats! You can't hate on that. He got it done!

    • it called heart and want to .... as a sixers fan ... Simmons we are looking at you extra crazy now .... yall came into the league dam near a year apart and this dude had no jumpshot free throws were blah and just kept working and being aggressive and now look hes a champion ... grats milwaukee

  • I love this game and everyone who loves it with me. Great day for basketball

  • You know what’s crazy ??? He did what lebron and KD couldn’t do, stay and become a champion. CRAZY !!!

    • @Akshaj Molukutla Stop the excuses… Lebron created a big 3 in Cleveland the 2nd time around and only won in 2016 because he cried to the refs to suspend Draymond Greene Get out to feelings boy 🐷

    • @Akshaj Molukutla dude just saying players could have signed with lebron but a lot of players don’t want to, hence why he left.

    • @Leoni Lebron's second best player on those early Cavs teams was Mo Williams. Giannis's was Khris Middleton. LeBron came back and took the Cavs to 4 straight finals. 5 in total.

    • @Akshaj Molukutla its not like he stayed and they drafted and traded for kyrie and love. He signed after they stock piled a bunch of 1st picks and got kyrie. These guys developed at the bucks the past 8 years. Its different. Its not quite the same what giannis and LeBron did.

    • LeBron came back to win. 3-1 too. He even carried some of the worst finals teams to a ring. His front office was horrible and didn't surround him with the necessary pieces.

  • Best in the game right now DPOY, 2x MVP, Champion, FMVP 💯💯

  • Congratulations bucks

  • Congratulations 50 piece 👏..harden where u at lol loser

  • Btw the future face of nba is doncic..the league MVP is jokic and the finals MVP is giannis..Americans busy flopping.all the best for the Olympics btw

  • I'm happy for him, but this might be the only one he gets in a while lol healthy nets, and healthy Lakers 🤣

    • You crazy if you think Giannis won’t be great next season, they are already championship team before all injuries. Now that they have tasted the feast, do you think they won’t get to work ?

    • Assuming health is a big assumption. LeBron is getting old too. His game will start declining soon eventually

  • It is nice to have superstar, that is not concerned about his brand or any of that outside noise. He does not even want to be friends with players in other teams and i respect that, because i grew up with 90`s basketball.

  • Gianni's represents Greece well!

  • Indeed a raw model for Europe and Africa

  • Congratulations sir. You deserve it!

  • Ya'll going to learn at some point to stop letting us Nigerians through the border. We about to dominate in everything. Naija boys no dey carry last💎

  • I guess Lillard is staying in Portland after this 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • He's American, he's going to leave lol.

  • The man can literally do everything that a team needs him to do and is no longer afraid of the big moments. Truly inspiring to see this guy getting better every series and game of the playoffs. It’s crazy to think that if he hadn’t blocked that 2vs1 lob in game 4, not hustle down to catch jrue’s pass in game 5, or missed even a couple more freethrows tonight, we might be seeing game 7 or suns winning the chip.

  • Giannis answered kobe challenge

  • after game 2: Don't you ever compare me to Giannis ever. Giannis: Bro try winning without a superteam and I dropped 50 in a closing game which you couldn't do

  • You won against a weal finals, lebron was out , Nets players got hurt, and others ,

    • That doesn't matter injury comes with any sport so don't down play the man's accomplishment it just makes you look petty.

  • He has a pretty smile

  • If I'm not mistaken...all Three brothers have a ring now✌🏾

    • @Picklechin Forehead one does in Spain..

    • He still has 2 other brothers but they don't play basketball

    • Yes, they beat the ball brothers

  • Like Kobe, Jordan & Dirk - he did it the RIGHT way! Congrats to Giannis and the rest of the Bucks! What an amazing series!

  • GREAT!!!!!!!!!!

  • We all know who he was talking about when he mentioned how easy it is to win on a super team. Exposing the Beard lol

    • Still that flopshow will come out yappin..don't care whether brookylyn wins it or no .this Milwaukee wi. Is gonna run hard on all of them for the next decade or so..

  • One things for sure, everyone is coming out hard next season after that comment lol

  • 26 years old leading his team to a chip! Gotta give it to the guy!

  • This was one of the best Finals Postgame interviews ever. If I ever feel down and need to be inspired, I can watch this. Congrats Champ!

  • new face of the nba

  • Kevin Durant after the bucks historical win " I'm taking my talents to Milwaukee "!

    • They beat his team so that might happen , Durant has the history of joining the team that just beat him.

  • im glad he stay its time to teach the kids about loyalty…. there are no more small markets if u’re great u can win anywhere

  • from nothing to the top great journey by Giannis! Stay there for long years buddy 🏆🏆🏆

  • "This is the hard way to do it, and the right way. And we did it, we F**king did it" Words of a real man! bruh clapped up the league at 26, 2 reg season mvps, 1 defensive player of the year and 1 finals mvp...what more is there to prove? bruh can retire today and be 1st ballot HOF

  • ): Gianni you’re amazing

  • How can you not like this guy. Breath of fresh air for the NBA.

    • dude this is actually only the 2nd interview i've ever seen of him. I am happy for him big time :)

  • He stayed in Milwaukee and did it the hard way instead of going somewhere else and being a super team…much respect to Giannis 💯

  • He's a good kid, man. Inspirational, humble, funny - & talented AF. Right on, bro. Enjoy your moment. :)

  • This generations shaq

  • "He can't shoot midrange, can't shoot 3, he can't shoot free throws, he can only dunk" and yet they still cannot stop him putting historical numbers This championship is bigger than just winning the NBA title. coming from Nigeria to Greece without nothing just to become the most dominant player since Shaq. A true warrior, champion and well deserved Finals MVP

    • @Creeper Creep 🥳

    • @deejay sensation ok dumbo lol!

    • @Creeper Creep ok creep master

    • He didn't come from Nigeria to Greece. Get your facts straight. He was born in Greece from Nigerian parents. That's why first name is Greek. He does not even speak the Nigerian language. He only knows Greek and now English.

    • @Abhilash Singh yea the thing is he actually has a serviceable midrange jumper now and he clearly wants to shoot more 3s which is pretty scary going forward. Now he’s gonna have his confidence up Middleton also showed he is a beast and has a clutch gene. So bucks look pretty scary going forward imo.

  • Giannis going for 7 finals mvp

  • Giannis is, without question, the new face of the NBA. This was one of the best post-championship interviews ever. He was humble, passionate, grateful, emotional, funny, and wise with so little effort. From where he started to where is now is one of the greatest stories in sports.

    • @Colby Martinez you do realize the king nickname is just a marketing play on his name right? Idk how old you are but back then, player nicknames were a thing, so Nike used that as the marketing campaign. Air Jordan, black mamba, the diesel and on and on 😂

    • This guy is the TRUE King. No self proclaimed, not doing the super friends, not joining the enemy, not promoting himself over his team… this guy is the King of the NBA. I couldn’t be more happy for him. This is some inspirational stuff.

    • The sports media is going to fight tooth and nail to stop that. But he’s taking it. He’s writing the narrative himself.

  • Well that was wholesome! I guess I passed an hearing exam too.

  • Giannis “I MADE MY FREETHROWS!!😂” Antetokoumpo

    • hahaha Right!!

    • Difference in the game right there. Giannis built different tho

  • How can you not like this guy?

  • Hey this guy is awesome 😎 Man, what a game to seal the championship too, for this guy. The points, blocks, everything. He played with his spirit. He made his free throws! Lol. Be blessed Giannas. Awesome game, and work sir
