On Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks took down the Phoenix Suns by a final score of 105-98 en route to winning the NBA title.
Milwaukee fell down 0-2 in the series after losing both of the first two games in Phoenix. However, the Bucks battled back, winning four straight games to win the NBA Finals in six games.
Giannis Antetokounmpo put on an incredible show in Game 6, dominating the Suns from the opening whistle. The Greek Freak racked up 50 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks and two assists on the night.
Millions of people from around the country – and the world – watched as Giannis had arguably the best game of his career. Among those watching was Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
After watching Giannis and the Bucks win the NBA title, LeBron took to Twitter with a message for the two-time MVP.
“Salute and congrats Giannis!! You earned that sh*t!!” LeBron said.

It’s classy of LeBron to send a message to Giannis and the Bucks, who deserve plenty of praise for the way they were able to battle back in the series.
Antetokounmpo took home the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award after averaging 35 points, 13 rebounds and five assists per game.
He and Khris Middleton helped the Bucks to their first NBA title in 50 years.
