There are few things sweeter in life than winning the highest level of competition in your sport and being named the most valuable player on your team in that endeavor. But Chick-fil-A’s Polynesian sauce is probably pretty close.
Giannis Antetokounmpo showed that on Wednesday, as the “Greek Freak” – freshly winner of the MVP final with a 50-point explosion against the Suns in Game 6 – proved he truly is a people’s champion. Antetokounmpo took to Instagram Live as he won both the Larry O’Brien Championship and MVP trophies through the chicken restaurant drive-thru.
Antetokounmpo fans ate him, as more than 150,000 people tune in to watch him with his girlfriend Mariah Riddlesprigger live their lives to the fullest. He also celebrated his performance in Game 6 by ordering a 50 piece mini chicken:

Hey, the MVP needs to refuel after that 50-point, 14-rebound, five-block performance. Also, props to him for asking the employee for permission before returning the camera.
It’s clear that Antetokounmpo was still in the mood for a joke the night before, as he also claimed to have signed with Milwaukee so he could have Chick-fil-A free for life (something he could have had more with. luck if he had signed with the Hawks):
Antetokounmpo clearly enjoys the view from the top, as he has strayed from his normally modest demeanor to slam “super teams”, mock his time in Milwaukee and even mock his free throw shot (after got 17 of 19 from the line foul in Game 6) after the Bucks win in the final.
It is his pleasure.
