Well-deserved and he overcame his free throw issues unlike another player.Most dominant inside the paint since Shaq.Go Bucks.

Well done Bucks. Pleased for them and for the owner, Wes.

Great series.

The alley oop in Game 5 changed the momentum.

That city and state have long been starved for a championship. Well done despite the woke culture within that league.

At least to this point Giannis tries to avoid the victimhood culture despite marching in the streets once in Milwaukee. Seemed like he did it under presssure.

Milwaukee waited 50 years for that.

Antetokounmpo ended one of the greatest NBA Finals ever with 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocked shots as the Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns 105-98 on Tuesday night to win an entertaining series 4-2 and cap off a joyous return to a fan-filled postseason after last year's NBA bubble.

Took 50 years; took 50 points

But didn't take creating a super-team of free agents

Down 0-2 against the Suns; down 0-2 against the Nets - won both (first team to do it more than once in the same playoffs)

In a season played played largely without fans, the Bucks had 65,000 of them packed into the Deer District outside, a wild party that figured to last deep into the Midwestern night.

That's 1 in 7 of all Milwaukee that's in and around the stadium, lol

Lebron lost his crown. The NBA has a new king. All hail Giannis.

What a performance in game six... Simply amazing. Let's just hope he's not playing for the Lakers in two seasons.

Are you serious?? Lebron is still the King one championship does not define Giannis Antetokounmpo as being the King he is in a smaller market and yes he is a great player but he does not have that star power. It took 50 points from Giannis he needs more support. Lebron has a lot of game left in him. The Lakers will be contenders next year, if not NBA Champions had it not been for injuries they would have definitely repeated!

Are you serious??

Yup. Giannis is 26 and probably still hasn't peaked. He's just getting started and will most certainly get a few more rings on his fingers.

It took 50 points from Giannis he needs more support.

Giannis just proved he didn't "need more support". He won a championship with a mid-level team. If he gets his help, he will roll on the NBA.

The Lakers will be contenders next year, if not NBA Champions had it not been for injuries they would have definitely repeated

They definitely wouldn't have. Their victory last season was already a fluke. Next year with Golden State coming back full force, the Nets gaining more experience, Jazz and Clippers strenghtening... Lakers don't stand a chance, unless they buy a big star again.

Thank you for pointing that out. It's an absolute travesty that a person with such stature among people of all backgrounds chooses to play the victim. What a waste. I thought he had more self-respect and was above that.
