NBA’s sensation Giannis Antetokounmpo was just a 6-year-old boy who had no interest in Basketball, when the ‘Milwaukee Bucks’ won the NBA playoff series in 2001, 18 years after, Giannis has led them to their first series victory.
“It means a lot. I’ve been six years in the league and just to win our first playoff series with this group right here is unbelievable,” he said.
Giannis Antetokounmpo now in his sixth season with Milwaukee, has described the Milwaukee Bucks’ progress as an “unbelievable journey”.
The Bucks completed a 4-0 sweep of the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference first round thanks to a 127-104 win in which Antetokounmpo posted 41 points.
“I think we played great basketball, stuck together the whole series…we’re just going to keep enjoying the moment and hopefully we can get better each day and achieve our goals that we’ve set all season.”
