A long list of truly amazing Yannis quotes
Giannis Antetokounmpo is not only an unstoppable basketball superstar, he is also an unreserved quotation machine, and the end result is constant laughter. In today’s NBA, it can be said that there is no better or more interesting role than this.
So, after winning Milwaukee’s first championship in years in his outstanding 50-point night, we can’t resist compiling all of Giannis’s best lines.
They are here, especially the order:
“I just woke up… Actually, I didn’t sleep yet, so why did I wake up.”
“Chris…we fucking did it.”-Giannis said to Khris Middleton on live TV.
“Can I have a Chick-n-Minis of 50? 50 is just right.”
“Don’t be jealous.”-Giannis, speaking to his finals MVP trophy after kissing the Larry O’Brien trophy.
“I hope 100,000 fans will be waiting for me at the (Athens) airport.”
“I started playing basketball just to help my family, trying to get them out of struggles and the challenges we faced when we were young… I never thought that I would sit in this chair at 26 years old… .. We’ve come a long way.”
“I can go to the super team and try my best to win the championship. But it’s difficult to do, and we did it.”
“I should be partying in Vegas now… These trophies have not left my sight. What if I wake up suddenly and all this is a dream? These trophies are my sense of security, and I know when I touch them. This is real.”
“I hope I can sell things to people all over the world… My mother sells things on the street, and now I sit at the top. … If I never sit at this table again, I will be fine. .”
“I’m out now. Can I leave now? I want to trade.”-Before a reporter reminded Giannis, Giannis had said that he would not leave Milwaukee before winning the championship.
“This should make everyone, every child, and anyone in the world believe in their dreams. I hope I can bring hope to people from all over the world from Africa and Europe, and hope it can be realized. Eight and a half years ago, in Before I entered the league, I didn’t know where my next meal would come from. My mother was selling things on the street.”
“Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do and what you can’t do. People tell me I can’t take free throws. I made free throws tonight. I made them. I’m a goddamn champion.”
“I don’t care if I come to the hotel!”-Giannis told his brother Thanasis that he was quarantined in the hotel due to the coronavirus agreement, and he replied: “No, you are not!”
“This is my city. They trust me. They believe me. They believe us.”
