By 2 years ago

Congratulations to Giannis Antetokounmpo, who won his first NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award.

The "Greek Freak" made all 16 of his shots in a historic 35-point performance, that propelled Team LeBron to a 170-150 victory over Team Durant in the NBA All-Star Game in Atlanta.

For his effort, Antetokounmpo was selected as the game's Most Valuable Player.

"It's fun," Antetokounmpo said postgame.

"It's fun. I was happy, my teammates had fun. Just being around great players it's easy to play with."

When asked what he would remember most about the game, he responded "definitely my son."

"This is the first time he's come to watch me play in the all-star game. This is for him. It's just fun to have family out."
