Giannis Antetokounmpo could have partied in Las Vegas, but instead, he went to Chick-fil-A.
At least that’s what Antetokounmpo said on an Instagram Live on Wednesday, hours after scoring 50 points in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to help the Milwaukee Bucks win the NBA championship.
Antetokounmpo filmed himself going through a Chick-fil-A drive-through with his girlfriend in Milwaukee, bringing the championship trophy and his Finals MVP trophy with him for the ride.
“I’m supposed to be in Vegas right now, partying,” Antetokounmpo said. “But I’m here ordering Chick-fil-A.”
Antetokounmpo said he was going to order a 50-piece chicken nugget with a half Sprite, half lemonade to celebrate his dominant performance.
After showing the trophies, Antetokounmpo joked that he had stolen the Larry O’Brien trophy from the Bucks and that he might have to face consequences for it.
“I gotta return the trophy back to the team,” Antetokounmpo said. “I stole it. I stole the trophy from the organization. They’re looking for the trophy. I gotta return the trophy back. Unless – I don’t know the consequences. Do I get traded? They’re probably gonna waive me. They haven’t won a championship in 50 years and now they won one and they don’t know where the trophy is.”
Antetokounmpo said he had not slept all night but would “crash” eventually.
The Bucks responded on Twitter, asking Antetokounmpo to keep the trophy safe.
