Giannis Antetokounmpo Completes The Kobe Bryant Challenge
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks put up four straight wins to take home the 2021 NBA Championship. Not too many years ago, A young Giannis had won his MVP award. The Greek Freak looked up to Kobe Bryant.
The Mamba had challenged him to bring home a championship and Giannis delivered in style. Kobe Bryant might not be here right now to congratulate Giannis in person but wherever he is, he sure is proud and probably telling Giannis the next challenge is to go Back to Back. The former Lakers star, Pau Gasol took to Twitter to congratulate Giannis in a way that would honor the challenge that Kobe left for the Greek Freak.
