Fikrlar

  • Giannis kept his promise to Kobe

  • Curses broken in big 4 sports in the last 11 yrs Giants ws drought broken Cubs ws drought broken Dodgers ws drought broken Royals ws drought broken Nationals and astros 1st titles even tho the Astros cheated Eagles and Seahawks won their 1st sbs Chiefs sb drought broken Cavs raptors and mavs won 1st title Warriors and bucks break their title drought Blues kings and capitals win their 1st Stanley cup Bruins break their title drought

  • THE CURSE IS DEAD! The Bucks have finally taken the championship.

  • Congratulations

  • Jrue Holiday was a huge missing piece in their previous runs. Bucks were lacking consistent guard play and perimeter defense outside of Giannis. Holiday helped fill that void. He compliments Giannis and Middleton well.

  • Congress

  • Congrats

  • Giannis and Milwaukee's love affair is now officially at the Kobe LA level. I don't think he will ever leave for another team.

  • Mike Breen narrating the end of the NBA finals never gets old lmao 😂😂

  • It's funny they didn't even mention that the Milwaukee bucks went back to the finals in 1974 but lost to the Celtics 😏

  • 113th comment

  • So incredibly happy for my Bucks and the city of Milwaukee. We've had some absolutely horrible seasons and some gut-wrenching defeats. On Wisconsin!

  • This video got me so hyped man

  • 0:39 Come on, man. Even if the man himself won his first of six, it was his only time he won as Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor.

  • What does LeBron James think of the Bucks winning the title this year?

  • 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!

  • Fun fact: Giannis tied the most points in a close out NBA Finals Game 🏆 5️⃣0️⃣🏀

  • 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

  • "Dedicated to the haters, the non-believers, and the disgruntled. Oh, no, I don't want you to leave. I want you to stay right here and watch Giannis rise to the top. It feels better that way"

  • Great job for a small market team. I bet against them and glad to be wrong.

  • Bucks win and it's all about super teams... Can we get some Milwaukee bucks action

  • Y'all should have put that clip when Kareem said "Milwaukee would not win a championship" right after 1971 🤣

  • 😭💍

  • We can’t forget about Jae Crowder he not getting off the hook that easy the bubble now this u have the experience and choked 😂

  • I never heard of him until these games

  • CP3 and Barkley, same team, same failure, different era

  • Well deserved

  • We need more players with the mentality of Kawhi, Duncan, and Giannis instead of Harden, Booker, and Tyler Herro. Just like MJ said: "My game was always built on fire and never flash"

  • The most amazing 👏 video so far!

  • Congrats Bucks 🍾🍾

  • Congratulations Bucks!! Well Deserved ‼️ 😊👏🏾

  • See trust to team that build you. .. Go bucks.

  • Don't watch Racist Basketball!!! Not enough whites are allowed to play... Hummm

    • Luka Doncic is white and he's one of the best players in the league.

  • Now everybody having the right amount of ' Giannis' in their mouths... But am sure ESPN about to bring up LeESPN today somewhere..I can smell it

  • Amazing moment

  • Man destroyed his knee, Healed, Won a championship.

  • No super team here. Just real blood sweat and tears plus a whole amount of hard work.

    • The way it's supposed to be

  • Overall, I just feel bad for Kyle Korver, who couldn't hold on for just one more season. I'm glad the Bucks won though!

  • This is the real definition of "Trust the Process".

  • Giannis refused to be in Space Jam 2 because... "I don't like being Hollywood. I don't like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me."

    • Hollywood or not Lebron as a laker has more rings than the Clippers franchise in their entire existance .1 Lebron lakers ring >0 Clipper banners .

    • Space Jam 3 after his 7th chip

    • Good, he doesn't want to end up like Harden and Booker, chasing fame and letting the money get to his head, instead of trying to focus on his game.

  • Giannis will be the greatest Buck ever when he retires!!! 🦌🏆🏆

  • Giannis has a top 20 career of all time and serious care for best Euro of all time.

  • أختكم من اليمن , أبي متوفي من 3سنة بسبب الحرب وعندي 4أخوات وحالنا يعلم الله فيه واني متكفلة فيهم , واني الان قمت بعمل قنات وربما أربح منها لكن ينقصني الكثير من المش تركين . واتمنى ما تسخروا مني , وأعرف إن هذه الطريقه غلط لكنها الطريقه الوحيده اللي اقدر من خلالها اكسب نقود حلال 💔💔 لا سامح الحرب اللي وصلتنا لذي المراحل)//

  • giannis put in all the work !!

  • 0:49 Giannis made the conference finals in 2019

  • Everybody worked for this champion , the loud city of Milwaukee deserve it, proud for Gianis. Big respect from Greece

  • Anything is possible - Kevin Garnett

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

    • @Thomas Little he out there somewhere crafting up some shuck and jive.

    • It is early in the morning my guy.

  • Congratulations, Giannis is now the best European to ever play in the NBA with back to back MVP awards and this Championship along with the finals MVP, sorry Dirk.

    • @D.J MAMBA Born and raised in Greece, learned basketball in Greece. Yeah, European

    • European 😆

  • I still fire coach Bud

  • Lebron could never .. he had to join forces with HOF players to win his rings

    • @Tan Cress yes.

    • @Aishite Kurenai Kyrie is not a future HOF ? Lol.

    • @Aishite Kurenai I’m pretty sure he will a HOF !

    • @kasper rieberg Don't think so, He is a Star nonetheless .

    • @Aishite Kurenai Kyrie is a future hof !!

  • Congrats, from a Magic fan.👏

  • They dont call him ''The Greek Freak" for no reason

  • Officer Derek Chauvin is a hero 🇺🇸

  • 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???

  • Congrats 🎉🎊

  • Giannis 😭😭😭 mahn 🔥

  • Cp0 choking like usual and overrated booker

  • That State Farm commercial with the buck destroying CP3s garage is looking eerie now. The ref Scott Foster is 13-0 now against CP3. Predictive programming right before your eyes...50 years 50 points

  • Super teams suck!

  • This championship doesn't count the nets were injured.

    • @kasper rieberg and the whole amount of fucks I give is zero

    • @Castro The Prince The whole nba are giving props to the Bucks and giannis, so i guess they will be fine without your support !

    • @kasper rieberg facts are facts in my eyes they're interim champions not real champions.

    • Stay salty bro 😂😂

    • 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • LETS GO

  • Giannis 1 ring way more valuable than all of LeStacked James's rings

  • Fear. The. Deer...

  • Only CP3 teams go up 2 games then lose 4 straight

    • people keep saying this but bucks fans knew that we played a poor game 1 in every game of the playoffs. even almost lost to the heat which was our only game 1 win. then we usually play another slow game in 2. but a little better. then game 3 we usually take off and just get better the longer a series goes. i fully expected to blow 1&2 but was hopeful to snatch one. but go look at the day after game 2. the entire bucks sub and twitter started blaring bucks in 6. pretty bold to assume you will win four strait lol

  • If Giannis and Middleton got hurt I’m sure Suns would have won

  • Giannis scored a point for every year of pain the franchise had been through💪🏾🦌

    • @Silencio Thequietloowell cinder*

    • Well spot on. Let's not forget Jabbar their last champion who said very publicly that they will never win this Finals. That's karma at its finest.

    • and an extra point to top it off

    • I just realized that….. wow

  • I’m sorry but i feel they not posting enough bout the bucks 😂 if these were the Lakers they’ll have like 20 more vids

    • @WeltchFirst 2 At least you tried

    • @SkubaSteve42 Ik dude chill😂 I’m juss being funny

    • Chill tf out its like 6 in the morning they dont post right away if you pay for espn you can see this is all they talking about you waiting for a video to be uploaded the moment they comment on it nah business dont work that way you gotta wait till 2 hours later to near what the morning people say

  • Please don’t start the “Giannis is the best player in the world” discussion because watch him never make it out the East again😂

    • @Michael Hession KD and Kyrie probably will stay together Harden will he the one to win and bounce

    • Well the Nets have 1 year left of the Big 3 before they are all FAs, the 76ers are at a crossroads, the Hawks are on the rise, the Knicks are trying to get Dame, the Heat want Kawhi, and the Wizards think they can keep up with everyone. I think that the Bucks can make it back there at least a couple more times in the next 5 years.

    • @Nick What's gonna happen ?? Nets big three will play together ?? They habe 3 injury prone superstars in a single team. Let that sink in.

    • Nah I’m let them enjoy it now plus technically that’s how it works. But next year oh boy 😭

    • Haters gotta hate

  • This just proves that Heat series last year was a fluke

    • @dipsetkory I’m just saying. This puts the exclamation mark on it

    • We already knew that once the season started, where have u been

  • New Suns pack in the air this gas or what

  • Giannis did it the right way, I know that championship ring feels real special to him...........too bad kevin Durant was never able to feel that same way about his 2 championship rings he won in golden state......

    • @Ryan Irwin- Diehl he defo cares about what people think lmao, have you seen his twitter replies?

    • @Ryan Irwin- Diehl the dude durant admitted that he thought winning a championship would fill a void but it didnt.......and how can you say durant doesn't care what people think when he clearly left the warriors because the public never fully respected him for joining a 73 win team.......if Durant didnt care what the public think he would of stayed on the warriors put a strangle hold on the entire league and constantly win finals mvp over and over until everybody was forced to respect him......

    • Lol how do you know how he feels? Durant is a HOFer and has 2 rings. We clown on him for joining GS but I seriously doubt he cares what people think.

    • @nolimitrash yOu’Re sO oBSesSeD, plz shut up

    • Why can't you just celebrate their win you're so obsessed

  • James Harden wakes up as a loser as always.

    • @Steadydropn Em gotta get past rd 2

    • James Soften. His defense is butter soft.

    • @Steadydropn Em Guarantee?

    • Nets will win one

    • I'm a hater as well bro! Who cares about Nets 🤣🤣🤣

  • First
