There are few things sweeter in life than winning your sport’s highest level of competition and being named your team’s most valuable player in that effort. But Chick-fil-A’s Polynesian sauce probably comes pretty close.
Giannis Antetokounmpo demonstrated that on Wednesday as the “Greek Freak” — fresh off winning Finals MVP with a 50-point explosion against the Suns in Game 6 — proved he truly is a champion of the people. Antetokounmpo went to Instagram Live as he took both the Larry O’Brien Championship and MVP trophies through the chicken restaraunt’s drive-thru.
Antetokounmpo’s fans ate it up, as more than 150,000 people tuned in to watch he and girlfriend Mariah Riddlesprigger live their life to the fullest. He also celebrated his Game 6 performance by ordering a 50-piece chicken minis:

Hey, the MVP needs to refuel after that 50-point, 14-rebound, five-block performance. Also, props to him for asking the employee her permission before flipping the camera around.
It’s clear Antetokounmpo was still in a joking mood from the previous night, as he also claimed he signed with Milwaukee so he could have free Chick-fil-A for life (something he might have had better luck with had he signed with the Hawks):
Antetokounmpo’s clearly enjoying the view from the top, as he branched out from his normally modest demeanor to slam “super teams,” make fun of his stint in Milwaukee and even poke fun at his free throw shooting (after going 17 of 19 from the foul line in Game 6) following the Bucks’ Finals win.
It’s his pleasure.
