The Milwaukee Bucks and 2x MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo won the 2021 NBA title last night. 50 years since the Bucks won a title, and now already have won twice as many as The Detroit Lions. The Bucks won a title 3 years into existence, the fastest of any professional teams. Never forget Glen Robinson, Ray Allen and Sam Cassel in 2001.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 50 points in Game 6 of NBA Finals, Milwaukee Bucks win club’s 1st NBA title since 1971.
It was as complete a performance from any player in NBA Finals history, garnering Antetokounmpo the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award, and it was for a franchise and city that have been starving for such success for half a century.
“He was able to put his stamp on the game in the third quarter and flip the score. And then some big plays in the fourth quarter – big plays, big blocks,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It’s hard to keep finding words for Giannis.”
