NBA Finals 2021: Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo named Finals MVP

Giannis Antetokounmpo capped off his all-time Game 6 performance, being named Bill Russell Finals MVP.

The Greek Freak delivered a historic performance in the closeout game, scoring 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks to deliver Milwaukee their first NBA championship since 1971 with a 105-98 win over the Phoenix Suns.

In his first Finals appearance, Antetokounmpo was nothing short of dominant, averaging 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and five assists per game and at 26 years old, he becomes the youngest player to win FInals MVP since Kawhi Leonard did so at age 22 in 2014.
