Trail Blazers starting shooting guard CJ McCollum showed Giannis plenty of love on social media both during the Game 6 series win and after.

Antetokounmpo, at 26 years old, is the second-youngest player to win MVP.

The Greek Freak notched 50 points Tuesday night as the Bucks won their first NBA title since 1971.


McCollum and many other Trail Blazers fans couldn’t also help but be excited for former Trail Blazers wing Pat Connaughton.

Congrats Planet Pat!

And of course, the Bucks victory also had many in Rip City thinking about how Milwaukee overcame the small market challenges to win a recent Championship.
