Giannis walks around with his trophy in Greece

Giannis, aka 'The Greek Freak', came to Greece and surprised the people there by walking around casually with his NBA Championship trophy and taking photos.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been no stranger to social media since winning the 2021 NBA Championship. On Wednesday, he posted this video casually walking through the streets of Greece with his NBA Championship trophy, surprising passerby, and they are loving it. You can see how enthralled they are by him and equally, how happy it makes him to make their days.

Giannis' humble upbringing

His humble upbringing can be attributed to his current humility. Giannis was born in Athens, Greece to Nigerian parents. He experienced poverty and discrimination growing up. As a result, it wasn't until 2013 that he actually gained his Greek citizenship. It is probably because of this that he is one NBA star who doesn't let the fame go to his head, and gets a thrill from being just a generally nice guy to the public.

Today, Giannis has won several awards and is recognized as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA Championship in the 2020-21 NBA Finals. He has won two League MVPs, First Team All-NBA selections, Defensive Player of the Year, First Team All-Defense, All-Star Game captain, All-Star Game MVP, Most Improved Player, NBA Champion, and Finals MVP.
