Just hours after scoring 50 points in Game 6 of the 2020-21 NBA Finals and clinching a championship, Giannis Antetokounmpo got himself another 50-piece Wednesday morning.
This time, it was courtesy of a Chick-fil-A drive thru in the Milwaukee area.
“Can I have, please, a 50-piece -- 50, exactly, not 51, not 49 -- Chick-n-Minis?” Antetokounmpo asked a restaurant employee, who was taking orders.
In front of a virtual crowd of over 150,000 people watching Antetokounmpo’s Instagram Live video, she obliged.
Antetokounmpo ordered the fast food with the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP trophy and the Larry O’Brien championship trophy sitting on his lap.
“I gotta return the trophy back to the team -- I stole it,” he said. “They haven’t won a championship in 50 years, and now we won one and they don’t know where the championship trophy is. They’re probably going to waive me.”
On Tuesday night, the “Greek Freak” became the seventh player in Finals history to rack up 50+ points in a game. He did it on 16-of-25 shooting from the field and 17-of-19 from the free-throw line.
Following the win, Antetokounmpo made it clear he wanted to do one thing -- party. The Finals MVP didn’t disappoint.
“It’s 10 a.m. and I haven’t slept at all,” he said on the Instagram Live. “I haven’t slept even for one minute. But, eventually, I’m going to crash.”
The party will continue into Thursday afternoon, when the Bucks will host a championship parade and celebration beginning at 11 a.m.
Hopefully, both the championship and Finals MVP trophies safely make it to the stage. But we’re going to trust the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.
He tends to deliver on promises.
