You might not care because the pandemic has brought on different levels of care in regards to interest since it all started. The NBA season was in the on-mode, and we do have a new championship team that is the Milwaukee Bulks. Their star player, Giannis Antetokounmpon was in a joyful mood and rightfully so after snagging his first NBA title.
Slightly walking pass Rachel Nichols on the court as he held the NBA trophy in his hand- Antetokounmpon stop and asked Nichols if anybody has ever given her the Larry O’Brien trophy told hold before. Nichols answered no to which Antetokounmpon handed it to her to have a feel of its weight and its texture.
Antetokounmpon expressed to Nichols that he wanted her to be apart of his NBA title win with him sharing a feel of the NBA trophy. It could also be a way of the NBA star displaying his support for Nichols after all the online bashing she received or that whole ESPN controversy.
Giannis sharing some trophy love while we were waiting for Khris Middleton – just flat-out grateful to all the players, coaches & so many others around the NBA who’ve been so incredibly supportive these past couple weeks. Next up: Draft, Free Agency, Summer League…see ya there… pic.twitter.com/KzNuVd2HSn
