In a hilarious moment post, winning his 1st NBA title, Giannis Antentokounmpo wants to smoke a cigar in the same iconic fashion as LeBron James.
The Greek Freak was ecstatic winning his first NBA championship, and rightly so. Giannis had one of the best Finals performances ever and was crowned 2021 Finals MVP.
It was a highly emotional moment for the 2x league MVP as well. Giannis was seen sitting on the bench post his victory, trying to absorb the unreal moment. The 26-year old was one of the most scrutinized players entering the 2021 post-season.
Over the years, the former DPOY was heavily criticized for his performances in the post-season as compared to his regular-season stats.
However, Giannis silenced all his critics by putting up a spectacle in the 2021 NBA playoffs. The superstar had a 50-point performance in a game-clinching match.

The Greek Freak had one of the craziest championship celebrations in recent times, which was carried to the Bucks’ locker room as well.
Giannis Antentokounmpo wanted to outdo LeBron James’ 2020 championship celebration
The Milwaukee superstar went live with his 10M Instagram followers to celebrate his championship. Giannis had a hilarious chat with his elder brother Thanasis, who was unable to join the celebration as he had entered the health and safety protocols of the league.

Giannis was so excited that even COVID19 wasn’t going to stop him from meeting his brother.
“I’ll come to the hotel. I don’t care. I’m coming,” Giannis said at one point.
“No you’re not, I’m not opening the door,” Thanasis said with a laugh.
However, the most hysterical moment during Giannis’ championship celebration was when he wanted a smoke a cigar, similar to what LeBron James did in 2020.
“I gotta do what Bron did last year, I need my cigar.”
Giannis is comedy 😭

LeBron James’ photo with his cigar during the 2020 Lakers championship celebrations is one of the coldest photos in league history, which went viral on social media.
