Giannis completed the 2019 Kobe Challenge


Kobe Bryant challenged people throughout his career. When he retired, he continued to demand better from everyone. He challenged Giannis Antetokounmpo to win MVP. Giannis did it twice, then asked what’s next. Kobe told him win a championship


We felt Kobe’s presence on this night of champions. And now at 26 years old, Giannis is a 2x MVP and an NBA champion


Usually shy on the rebounding line, Antetokounmpo applied himself, who insisted that this Game 6 would be won by being more rigorous than ever. He didn’t give up a single possession. He fought all the way. On offense. On defense. 14 rebounds and even 5 assists. Some of them (contentious) quite important in the fourth quarter.

Bucks and Suns were tied 77-77 at the beginning of the last 12 minutes of these finals. Mike Budenholzer’s players were able to take the upper hand, especially thanks to the shots of their superstar. But also by putting in the evil of a Devin Booker (19 points at 8 of 22) and a Chris Paul discrete at times (26 points at 11 of 19). Suddenly less sparkling, stifled by the opposing defense, the offensive armada of Phoenix showed its limits.
