1. BUCKS IN 6! The Bucks have won their first championship in 50 years (!!!) thanks to Giannis’ incredible performance. The obvious choice for Finals MVP, Giannis is the first player EVER to average 30+ points, 10+ rebounds, and 5+ assists on at least 60% shooting in NBA Finals HISTORY!
  2. Think three brothers playing in the NBA is impressive? With Kostas winning a ring with the Lakers last year and Giannis and Thanasis winning one last night, the Antetokounmpo Bros are officially the first sibling trio in NBA history to all win a ‘chip!
  3. What does an MVP do on his day off? Back in March, Giannis revealed that he likes to enjoy all his favorite foods when he has a little break. His menu includes pepperoni pizza, chicken wings, and smoothies. The perfect celebratory meal if you ask us! 
  4. His jersey number is inspired by his parents! Giannis’ mom was born in 1963 and his dad was born in 1964. He decided to take the “3” and “4” and put them together to make his number, “34”.
  5. Six months before he went to the NBA, Giannis says he didn’t know where his next meal would come from. He wanted to play basketball to provide for his family. Now, he’s a 5x All-Star, 2x MVP, All-Star Game MVP, Finals MVP, and NBA Champ (to name a few)!
