Giannis Antetokounmpo has made it clear that he’s trying to win a championship before he fully feels as an MVP. In the meantime, he’s enjoying the little victories he collected this season, including his back-to-back MVP award. However, not everybody is happy about Giannis being happy with his success and always try to find a way to bash the Milwaukee Bucks star regardless of what he does.
Antetokounmpo recently shared a picture of himself reading a newspaper that announced his MVP victory, looking a lot like a tribute to what Kobe Bryant did when he won back-to-back NBA championships with Shaquille O’Neal and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Well, some people didn’t like that and instantly came to attack Giannis for not being humble. Yes, celebrating your achievements is seeing as showing off by some people in the NBA community.
Crazy that people really thought this dude was humble. pic.twitter.com/oa0jawHdhf

Bruh if the most hated player in the NBA ( Harden)won and took a pic like this he'd be crucified. " LOL got bounced out of the playoffs early and is happy with League MVP, what a choker"

Crowned himself after a regular season game win.

He was humble but you can obviously tell he changed when he put the crown on himself when he played against Lebron. That's disrespect. Loved how it turned out. Him crowning himself Lebron teammates crowning him and giannis getting exposed in the playoffs while Bron on the WCF

While some were quick to attack him, others came in Giannis’ defense, alleging he was just making a tribute to Kobe Bryant, his mentor.

He did it as a tribute to his mentor…Kobe Bryant. Keeping being heated though I guess pic.twitter.com/OE1L5FJvBZ

A flex after two straight MVP seasons hurts your feelings that bad?

He literally sold trinkets on the street and was in poverty most of his life but because he’s reading a newspaper he’s not humble? Yeah ok

This is something crazy to see. Giannis isn’t harming anybody with this pic, yet some people feel like he’s killing somebody by taking a picture like this. He is the rightful MVP winner and he knows he still has to fight and get better to win an NBA champion. A little flex after winning two consecutive MVP awards isn’t the end of the world.
