Giannis’s run is genuinely impressive. Why? Let’s think about it for a second.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Finals Run is Impressive Because He Did it the Right Way!
Like I mentioned before, Giannis didn’t go to a super team. He stuck with the Bucks even when they were getting knocked out of the first round of the playoffs in his early days. Remember one season ago when the Bucks got upset by the Miami Heat in the conference semifinals? It would’ve been easy for Giannis to want to request for a trade and just leave Milwaukee. But he didn’t. He carried his team to a championship and there’s a lot of respect that comes with it.
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Finals Run is Impressive Because of Everything Going Against the Bucks
The Bucks didn’t have it easy this season. They had to deal with the Nets, who everyone thought would win the Finals, including myself. They had to deal with Giannis getting hurt in the Atlanta series and almost ending his season. Not only all of this, they had to deal with head coach Mike Budenholzer hearing rumors of firing. Would Budenholzer have been fired if Milwaukee lost early in the playoffs again? Maybe. But Giannis made it so Mike Budenholzer keeps his job for another couple of years. The Bucks had LITERALLY everything going against them.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had an NBA Finals run for the ages. It’s amazing that the Bucks pulled this off. This should wake you all up Celtics fans. You have an up and coming superstar in Jayson Tatum and a star in Jaylen Brown. Get the right pieces around you and you could emulate what the Bucks did in a few years. for now though, this is Giannis’s moment. Congrats Giannis, very well deserved!
