The partnership of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton has been one that was heavily scrutinized by many people. Despite their clear chemistry and personal relationship, there were people that doubted whether Khris Middleton could be the championship-caliber No. 2 behind Giannis Antetokounmpo.
With the Milwaukee Bucks reaching the NBA Finals, those discussions have quieted down somewhat. With the 40 point performance he put on in Game 4 of the Finals, it seems as though Khris Middleton is showing everyone what he's truly capable of. Giannis Antetokounmpo has never doubted his co-star. Recently, Antetokounmpo revealed that Khris Middleton is the player that he wants to build his legacy with.
You know, that's the dude I wanna build a legacy with, and be with him. Be a part of his own journey and he can be a part of my journey, and do this together.
That is certainly a strong message from Antetokounmpo, who has been criticized at times for his decision to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks, despite his status as the lone superstar on the team. However, it seems as though the loyalty to the franchise and his teammates has worked out, as Giannis Antetokounmpo is two games away from lifting his first championship. A lot of the Bucks' performance depends on how their star duo does, and this postseason, they have shown they're up to the challenge.
