Giannis Antetokounmpo brought home the 2021 NBA crown to the organization that picked him 15th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Antetokounmpo, who signed a supermax extension with the Milwaukee Bucks entering the season, averaged 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5 assists to help the team beat the Phoenix Suns 4-2 in the NBA Finals.

Instead of entering the free-agent market and teamed up with another superstar, which would guarantee multiple NBA titles, the two-time MVP decided to stay to the team that took a chance on him back when he was in Greece.

“I could go to a superteam and just do my part and win a championship,” Antetokounmpo said. “But this is the hard way to do it and this is the way to do it. And we did it.”

Despite the emergence of player empowerment and superteams in modern NBA, the “Greek Freak” stayed put in Milwaukee and put in the work for them to win the NBA title.

The victory couldn’t be much sweeter since Antetokounmpo led the franchise to its first championship in 50 years.

“This is my city,” Antetokounmpo said. “They trust me. They believe in me. They believe in us.”
