Basketball is temporary.Family is forever.
After forward Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 points — including 20 in the third quarter — to lead the Bucks to its first championship in 50 years, the 2021 NBA Finals MVP had a special moment with his brother, Thanasis.
The brothers are both on the Bucks, but Thanasis did not play in Games 5 and 6 after being placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
“I am a f—king champion,” Giannis said. “Nobody can say s—t to me!”
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no,” Thanasis responded. “You are not. No you are not. I am not opening the door.”
Thanasis, 29, then pumped his fist as his little brother celebrated, watching from afar with a tear in his eye.

The Greek Freak proved the haters wrong with a dominant championship performance, becoming the first player in NBA Finals history to average 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists on 60% shooting. Most notably, his 50 points, 14 rebounds and 17-of-19 night from the line on Tuesday at Fiserv Forum helped the Bucks avoid a trip back to Arizona for Game 7.

On Instagram Live with over 250,000 fans watching following the Bucks’ 105-98 Game 6 victory, they rapped “For the Night” by Pop Smoke featuring fellow Lil Baby and DaBaby, joked over the 26-year-old Giannis smoking a cigar and talked about meeting up at Thanasis’ hotel.
“I love you, I am coming to the hotel,” Giannis said. “I am coming. I don’t care. I am coming.”
The Antetokounmpos’ younger brother, Kostas, won the NBA Finals with the Lakers last season. The trio became the first three brothers to all win NBA titles.Filed under giannis antetokounmpo , milwaukee bucks , nba , nba finals , nba finals 2021 , thanasis antetokounmpo , 7/21/21

Oregon Dog Reunites With Texas Family After Owner Dies
(CBSDFW.COM) – Three weeks has felt like a lifetime for Susan Cox, who reunited with her son’s dog on Wednesday afternoon.
Cox’s son, Trey, died on July 4 while taking a nap. Cox says he struggled with blood clots. Thankfully, the grieving mother tells CBS 11 News, Trey didn’t die alone — Cami was there for him during his last breath.
“She was his soulmate and vice versa. And Cami being there with him for his final transition, I feel that it was supposed to be,” an emotional Cox shared.
After her son’s passing, Cox, who lives in Texas, had trouble transferring Cami – who lived in Oregon with Trey – to her home.
Luckily, Danielle Stewart, CEO of Apollo Support and Rescue, volunteered to help make the dire reunification happen.
“I just lost my brother on March 30. My brother was found dead and that loss was just overwhelming with grief so when I saw this mother losing their son, it just really hit home for me and I knew I had to bring this dog back home to the family,” Stewart told CBS 11.
While Cox says she and Cami are still grieving, getting through this time together is all she can ask for. “She’s gonna know immediately that I have his energy and he’s with me and I feel that he’s here now too,” said Cox.
