2021 NBA Finals
Giannis Antetokounmpo orders 50-piece nuggets at Chick-fil-A to celebrate performance
The Finals MVP made sure his order didn't have 49 or 51 chicken nuggets, but instead the same number of his points in Game 6.

Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered such a monster performance in Game 6 of the 2021 NBA Finals that all would be forgiven if he missed both free throws with under 10 seconds remaining.
The Bucks superstar might not have forgiven himself though since he was presented with an opportunity to etch his name in the 50-point record books. Antetokounmpo stepped to the line and connected on one of two, which was just enough to cement the 50-piece.
What better way to celebrate than a 50-piece order at Chick-fil-A.
Giannis took the NBA championship and Finals MVP trophies to the drive-thru at Chick-fil-A for another 50 piece. 🤣

The live stream at the drive-thru just happened to be the latest display of Antetokounmpo’s joyful disposition.
He vocalized the importance of staying present and enjoying life throughout the NBA playoffs, and now, the Finals MVP can do so with a large stash of chicken-minis.
