The Greek Freak Adetokunbo Wins NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award

He is Giannis Sina Ougko Antetokounmpo (don’t mind the name, it is actually Giannis {pronounced ‘janis’} Ugo Adetokunbo)

A Nigerian youngster, born in Athens, Greece by immigrant parents now officially a Greek, was on Tuesday crowned the Most Valuable Player(MVP) at the 2019 edition of the prestigious National Basketball Association (NBA) Awards. He is the third-youngest person to have won it in the past 40 years.

He got the nickname “Greek Freak” due to his ability to possess the ball-handling skills of a point guard and the battering ram force of an old school center despite being nearly seven feet tall.
