Giannis Made Me Cry Today

I read this Sports Illustrated article and I swear to God I teared up.
Look, I know Milwaukee Bucks fans have a tortured history of being letdown and having nothing to cheer for, but my goodness does this feel different. Giannis Antetokounmpo has incredible character with an incredible backstory, and Lee Jenkins does an outstanding job highlighting that in this piece.

And damnit if I didn't tear up a little bit. Being in the building last night for that Bucks/Thunder game, that is the kind of atmosphere that Milwaukee can provide this team every single night. I know it. Milwaukee has been on the edge of their seat ready to root for a winner for a long time, and the pieces are being put in place with Giannis at the center. It gives me great joy to know in my heart of hearts how good this team can be and how good that will be for the city.
We may not deserve Giannis, we may not deserve these Bucks and the future that is in store, but let's grab on to them as quick as we can and enjoy the hell out of this ride.
