Giannis Antetokounmpo has perfect reaction to him, two brothers being NBA champions

The Antetokounmpo brothers have taken the NBA by storm. 

With Tuesday's Game 6 win over the Phoenix Suns to win their first NBA title, Milwaukee Bucks stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thanasis Antetokounmpo join their brother, Kostas Antetokounmpo, in winning a championship. 

Kostas won a title with the Los Angeles Lakers last year. 

Following Game 6, ESPN's Malika Andrews asked Giannis how it felt that he and his brothers are now all NBA champions. He had the perfect reaction. 

Giannis was named Finals MVP after he averaged 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and five assists during Milwaukee's 4-2 series win over the Suns. In Tuesday's title-clinching Game 6, the 26-year-old had 50 points, 14 rebounds and two assists in 42 minutes. 

Thanasis played a minor role off the bench during the NBA playoffs but did not suit up for the final two games of the Finals after entering the league's health and safety protocols. 

Before the Antetokounmpo brothers, Pau and Marc Gasol were the only other brothers to win NBA titles after doing so with the Lakers and Toronto Raptors, respectively.
