Giannis Antetokounmpo's ascension from a mysterious non-lottery pick in 2013 to a Finals MVP is complete, thanks to the Milwaukee Bucks' 105-98 win over the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 on Tuesday.In a closeout game that featured Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday, no one shined anywhere near as bright as Giannis, whose 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks put him in exceptionally rare company.The list of ways you can contextualize what Giannis did during this postseason, this Finals and this Game 6 could probably go on a while longer.The arc of his entire career bears mentioning too. Perhaps most impressively, he went 17-of-19 from the charity stripe (tied for the fourth-most makes in a single Finals game), after entering Game 6 with a 55.6 free-throw percentage for the playoffs.With a chance to win the Bucks' first title in 50 years, Giannis was as locked in as he's ever been. After that soured, he went to the Los Angeles Lakers and lured Anthony Davis there a year later.Kevin Durant's move from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors was similarly critiqued around sports websites and social media platforms.Kawhi Leonard won what now feels like a hired-gun championship with the Toronto Raptors in 2019.For Giannis to win multiple MVPs with the smaller-market team that drafted him and not even entertain free agency before winning a title is unusual.
