Congratulations to the phenomenal 2x MVP, Greek freak Giannis Sina Ugo Atetokuonmpo, his brother Thatanis Atetokuonmpo and Nigeria's Jordan Ifeanyi Nwora for being the NBA 2021 Champions. This makes Nwora the 2nd Nigerian to win the title after the legendary Hakeem 'the dream' Olajuwon.

Adetokunbo

What the fvck is atetokumpo.

Mtchew.

Adetokunbo is a nice Yoruba name.

Their 'Ade' has gone back to Oke okun, so why won't they mess up the name?

brother please , Nobody is claiming " the greek freak " , his NAME claimed us ! And his blood is forever African sharing the same heritage for good or hbad with the kaaro-ojiire's of southwest nigeria .can't argue with bloodline , the greek s know this thats why theydenied a " GIANNIS " born in their country citizenship for eighteen years because he is not GREEK BY BLOOD !

Fun fact - HUGO WALLACE WEAVING , ever heard of him ? he is a popular actor born in ibadan nigeria .Does the names sound Nigerian like say Adetokunbo( antetokoumpo ) ? No ? Well , Agent smith of the MATRIX movie fame , though born and lived ibadan, Nigeria for a year can't be " claimed " as one of us you see , blood is thicker and all . . . . . .

Its truly a beauty cos i can't just believe it from two games down and win the championship is just unexplainable i was waw.
I was watching game one and two and asked myself how the Bucks were going to overturn this game when they are not too good with three points throw and Giannis was missing some free throws too.

In game 3 and 4, I saw the aggression and knew it was what they needed.

Aggression and Giannis became more of a beast each game.

This game 6 just solidified his place as a hall of famer.

Livelystone01:

Sometimes, i imagine how he gets his numbers because he's not a consistent three pointer like Durant and Curry but then I also know that he's a very powerful forward.

The Bucks are very disciplined. How they came from two games down to win this championship is truly a beauty.

See how they turn their Yoruba names to Greek

That’s because they are not really Yoruba. Their parents used someone’s passport to travel to greece and got stuck with that name. They are igbos.

Think about it, no real Yoruba person will dumped his name just like that.

1. None of the kids have any Yoruba name as first name or middle name

2. Their first brother has a full igbo first name and surname

3. They have never mentioned where in yoruba land they are from. When asked, they simply say they are from Lagos.

4. Looking at their dad’s picture, it is very clear he is an igbo man


People travelled using fake kpali to get a better life in europe, but their kids turned out to become superstars and they are stuck with the fake name (Adetokunbo) that the parents used to travel and seek asylum in europe

Gianis brother that also plays for the Milwaukee bucks is actually his elder brother.

After gaining Greek citizenship in 2013, his family Hellenized their surname from Adetokunbo to Antetokounmpo to more closely follow Greek spelling rules

Stop this tribal madness, how will Mr Charles Adetokumbo being "Igbo" add millions to your bank account? Instead of you to draw valuable lesson from the indefatigable spirit of their parents who ventured into uncharted waters to give their sons a better life, you are here arguing the unarguable.
Stop being an embarrassment!
How can you accurately know a man's tribe by his physiognomy alone?
Mr Charles is a Yoruba man married to Mrs Victoria an Igbo woman case closed. #SickNLDTribalists!

A simple google search for his documentary would’ve helped cure your ignorance. You confidently drop this gibberish with full chest? Stop doing attache by force. They’re Nigerians simply put. You guys need to deal with your insecurity. Claiming what isn’t true with so much confidence and arrogance.

You a bastard manipulator.
Were you there when the man used someone else passport?
So, why did he use Yoruba passport not his fellow yeboo passport?
Is Shina part of Gianis name a yeboo name?
Are you bearing your fathers name as your surname or your mothers

mother and father are igbo, his real name is ugochukwu, which he still retained on Instagram, I don't know why he chose Greek name like Giannis.
his mother is igbo and his father is Yoruba.

Adetokunbo his surname is pure Yoruba.

You don't have to be a genius to know that.
