Back in 2013 when an eighteen year old Greek kid Giannis Antetokounmpo standing at 6’9 215lbs was drafted by Milwaukee Bucks no one could’ve projected that he would blossom to the phenomenal superstar NBA player he is today so quickly. There is no doubt that most NBA fans and analyst alike knew that this kid would blossom, but in just six NBA seasons he went from rookie to MVP. Part of this success comes with the insane work ethic Giannis has, he’s worked tirelessly every offseason to get better growing 2 more inches, gaining 30lbs of muscle and raising averages consistently throughout the years. This 2018-2019 NBA season however was Giannis “Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo best yet earning his 3rd All Star appearance leading all of the NBA in All Star votes, with stats like 27.7PPG 12.5RPG 5.9APG, shooting an astonishing 58% from the field, leading his team nearly to the NBA Finals before falling just short to the eventual NBA Champion Toronto Raptors led by Kawhi Leonard. Throughout the entire season it was no question that Giannis would be either number one or two in the MVP race with Houston Rockets James Harden. When it was all set and done last night at the third annual NBA Awards on TNT Giannis hoisted the NBA MVP award that so many greats before him have hoisted making him the third youngest to win the award in NBA history giving a heartfelt speech honoring his family and highlighting that two years ago he had a goal to be the best player in the NBA and win the MVP. Well now the “Greek Freak” has accomplished the highest individual award in the NBA and we are sure his sights are now set on hoisting the NBA Championship trophy.

The past two years have been tough for Kanye West fans as most have abandoned the once beloved Chicago native that created classic hip hop albums College Dropout and Late Registration. Last year Kanye openly supported president Donald Trump, is said to be the key piece that started a hip hop war between Drake and Pusha T, released an album that didn’t live up to what many have come to expect from him and plenty more issues we could name that ultimately led to majority of hip hop fans considering him “Canceled” This year Kanye has been a bit more subtle in his actions with the bulk of the attention being geared toward his now weekly ‘Sunday Service’ that has attracted the likes of Chris Tucker, Brad Pitt, Justin Bieber and plenty more of the who’s who in Hollywood and Hip Hop alike to come see what most have been calling a “spiritual uplifting environment” where West and his choir led by director Jason White. With an album set to release many are considering this all a ploy by Kanye to ease his way back into the good graces of the African American community. The speculation of this led us to Kanye West 2013 interview on Power 106 Los Angeles where he laid out his 10 year plan/goals. After watching where do you stand on Kanye West, Is he really trying to get back in the good graces of the African American community or is he just following the path he spoke about 6 years ago ?
