Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo takes massive shot at players that join superteams to win titles

Giannis Antetokounmpo Bucks

Tuesday night was a victory for small market teams everywhere, as the Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA championship in six games over the Phoenix Suns.

Afterward, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo threw some shade at other stars who have won rings or tried to do so by forming a superteam.

The past two seasons, the Bucks were sent home to lick their wounds after heart-wrenching defeats in the playoffs.

Antetokounmpo was set to become a free agent following this season, and there was speculation he would decline a contract extension and possibly join a big market team such as the Miami Heat.

Instead, he stayed in Wisconsin, and his faith in his team paid off big time.

How the Bucks won this championship goes against the recent trend of teams such as the Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors loading up to win a ring.

This season, the Brooklyn Nets added James Harden and Blake Griffin to a squad that already possessed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in an attempt to get to the promised land.

The Bucks are proof that a team does not need multiple superstars to win the ultimate prize.
