Yes, Giannis Ordered 50 Chick-fil-A Nuggets After Scoring 50 Points — Winning NBA Finals

Snopes.com 22 July, 2021 - 02:11pm

But, on July 20, 2021, the team did it — with Giannis Antetokounmpo, a.k.a. “The Greek Freak,” scoring 50 points in what has been described as one of the greatest NBA Finals ever.

So, how did he celebrate the next day?

By placing a 50-piece order of Chick-Fil-A’s chicken nuggets …

.. with the Larry O’Brien and his NBA Finals MVP trophies in the car with him.

“Can I have, please, 50-piece — not 51, not 49 — minis, yes? 50. And let me have a large, no ice, half-Sprite, half-Lemonade.”

Considering that recorded evidence, we rate the claim “True.”

Earlier, the footage showed him sitting in the vehicle with one of the trophies in his lap and the other between his legs on the vehicle’s floor as he excitedly sang and danced. He said he hadn’t slept at all since winning the championship the night before.

The stream then recorded the two-time, regular-season MVP supposedly trying to persuade the fast-food restaurant into giving him “free Chick-Fil-A for life” but having no luck. After that, he drove around Milwaukee with excited fans chanting and swarming his vehicle.

While scoring the 50 points in Game 6 against the Phoenix Suns — pushing the Milwaukee team on top, 105-98 — Antetokounmpo had 14 rebounds and five blocked shots, and the team won largely because of him. The Associated Press reported:

It was the third game this series with at least 40 points and 10 rebounds for Antetokounmpo, a dominant debut finals performance that takes its place among some of the game’s greatest. Antetokounmpo finished with 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game while shooting 61.8%, the first player in finals history to reach those numbers.

He shot 16 for 25 from the field and made an unbelievable 17-of-19 free throws — a spectacular showing for any shooter, let alone one who was hitting just 55.6% in the postseason and was ridiculed for it at times.
