NBA players react to the Bucks and Giannis winning the NBA championship

Greek Freak

After exactly 50 years, the Milwaukee Bucks have won their second NBA championship in franchise history after a monster performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks won the game 105-98 against the Phoenix Suns behind the Greek Freak and his monster game with 50 points, 14 rebounds, 5 blocks, but most importantly, he shot 17 from 19 from the free-throw line, which was crucial reason for their win tonight. Giannis is also the Finals MVP award, and rightfully so after such a dominant performance on both ends of the floor.

The rest of the NBA players went to their social media accounts to share their respect for Giannis, Bucks, and the Suns, who put a valiant effort this entire season. Nobody expected the Bucks to win it all, but here they are, and the rest of the NBA loves it.
