Some athletes celebrate a big win by going to Disneyland or Walt Disney World, but not Giannis Antetokounmpo.
On Wednesday, Antetokounmpo won the team’s NBA Championship trophy, as well as his own MVP trophy, thanks to a Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Brookfield, Wisconsin, to get some food after the tournament.
Rightfully so, he bought an order for 50 nuggets to go along with the 50 points he lost in Game 6 and documented the chicken coop on social media.
Antetokounmpo admitted he had not slept the night before and called the trophies his “babies”.
The Bucks seemed to agree, according to the tweet they posted.
Fans of Chick-fil-A quickly recognized Antetokounmpo after placing his order. They started to sing “Dollars in 6! ”Around his SUV, according to Milwaukee station WISN.
Antetokounmpo even let a fan touch the NBA Championship trophy.
WISN reporter Stephanie Sutton managed to corner Antetokounmpo after her trip and ask him the crucial question: why did he choose to go to Chick-fil-A?
The basketball star put it in perspective: “I was hungry.”
Yet Antetokounmpo has not lost sight of the bigger picture. Knowing that he would never have more influence in Milwaukee, he made sure to ask the manager of Chick-fil-A if he could have free food for life.
