Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Smile Could Light Up Any Room
Giannis Antetokounmpo won the Defensive Player of the Year on Tuesday evening. He took home the hardware for the first time ever. One thing they do have available in the bubble is a place for photos. Giannis received his picture with the Defensive Player of the Year trophy. He smiled maybe the largest smile I’ve seen on him in a while. He looked so damn happy to win a DPOY award. Maybe it was a goal of Anteteokounmpo to win this award this season? Or maybe he is happy to add more things to his mantle. Regardless, that smile is a great one.
Giannis enjoyed getting the honor with all of his teammates who he thanked for the award. Giannis also shouted out Mike Budenholzer and the coaching staff for helping him become a better defender. It is not often you see a guy at Giannis’ stature take home Defensive Player of the Year. Kobe Bryant, LeBron James have made Defensive First Teams, but neither of them have won DPOY.
Keep smiling Giannis and hopefully, that isn’t the only thing you’re smiling about this Fall.
