Rudy Gobert Defends Giannis Antetokounmpo After CJ McCollum Says Khris Middleton Could Win FMVP: "They Really Wanna Discredit Giannis That Bad Lol"

Publish date:

Giannis Antetokounmpo is having an NBA Finals for the ages. The Milwaukee Bucks superstar is on a tear right now, leading his team to a 3-2 advantage over the Phoenix Suns. 

He's on the verge of winning his first NBA championship and most definitely his first Finals MVP award. Giannis has been on another level during this season, yet still, people find reasons to think he doesn't deserve the FMVP. 

One of those was CJ McCollum, who wondered how many votes Khris Middleton would get if the Bucks win the ring. 

Spencer Dinwiddie also asked the same, creating a hypothetical scenario where Giannis didn't play Game 6, and the Bucks still win the title. 

This didn't sit well among the NBA community, and even Rudy Gobert had something to say about it. The Utah Jazz star saw all these tweets as direct disrespect towards Antetokounmpo, calling everybody out.

Regardless of what everybody says, Giannis is a lock for the Finals MVP if the Bucks win the championship. Khris Middleton has been great in the closing moments, but the Greek Freak is the leader of the team and the one carrying the heavier load against the Phoenix Suns.
