KUMPARA sa mga basketbolista na umanib sa mga super team upang masungkit ang kampeonato sa NBA, ipinunto ni Finals Most Vaulable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo na nasungkit nito ang NBA championship kasama ang Milwaukee Bucks sa mahirap na paraan.

“I could go to a superteam and just do my part and win a championship but this is the hard way to do it and this is the way we chose to do it. And we did it, we f—king did it,” sey ni Giannis.

Ilan sa mga namarkahan bilang mga super team ngayong season ang Los Angeles Lakers nina LeBron James at Anthony at ang Brooklyn Nets nina Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving at James Harden.

Pinamunuan ni Antetokounmpo ang Bucks kahapon upang maibagahe ng koponan ang kanilang unang titulo simula 1971. Wagi ang Bucks sa Game 6 Finals 105-98 kontra Phoenix Suns.

Sa kanyang postgame interview, nagbalik tanaw ang two-time league MVP sa kanyang desisyon na manatili sa Bucks at idiniin ang hirap na kanilang pinagdaanan para sa kampeonato ng torneo kumpara sa mga super team.

“I couldn’t leave. There was a job that had to be finished,” sambit ni Antetokounmpo. “I feel like the bubble did not pay us justice. Give credit to the Miami Heat. They played great, but it did not pay us justice. Everybody was feeling homesick. We are a family-oriented team, wanted to see our families. But coming back, I was like, ‘This is my city. They trust me. They believe in me. They believe in us.’ Even when we lost … obviously I wanted to get the job done.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
