Giannis Antetokounmpo Is staying in Milwaukee, after putting up 50 pts
Nigerian Athlete, Giannis has plenty to smile about as both his team and he were successful. In Game 6, Giannis scored 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. Additionally, his 50 point total ties with Hall of Famer Bob Pettit’s record as the highest points earned in a closeout game. There is no doubt that Giannis helped Milwaukee get that 105-98 victory over Phoenix. As 33 of those points came from an energized second half to ensure the victory by attacking the rim.
In regards to pulling a LeBron and leaving for a Super team, Giannis says,
“This is my city. They trust me…believe in me…believe in us.’ … Obviously I wanted to get the job done. But that’s my stubborn side. It’s easy to go somewhere and go win a championship with somebody else. It’s easy. … I could go to a super team and just do my part and win a championship. But this is the hard way to do it and this is the way to do it, and we did it. We f—ing did it.”
Giannis: Dedicating success to his loved ones
Then, emotional, he reflected on his reasons for getting to this championship and who he dedicates his success to.
“This is for my mom. She works extremely hard every day for me to be in this position, and she never pressured me to do other things. This is for my dad. He’s watching from above, and he can see it. This is for my significant other. Every day, she helps me be a better person.”
On his Struggles with making free throws
Giannis Antetokounmpo like Ben Simmons struggled with making his free throws. Yet, unlike Ben, he focused on doing better and points to it as something to be proud. “I made my free throws tonight and I’m a freaking champion.” Maybe, Ben should take some notes.
