    I'm not usually one for pop psychology but dang if there isn't a lot of wisdom in what Giannis is saying here. His story and background is incredibly inspirational and I couldn't be happier for his win last night.

    Incredible talent and, by all accounts, a great and humble guy. Good dude - I'll always be rooting for him.

    He's awesome. I remember when Kobe said the sky's the limit for him.

    I saw that yesterday and thought... yup. that works.

    There were so many young men in that game last night that are very easy to root for as humans....

    that kind of thinking brings peace.

    I can’t fathom being that articulate and insightful in the spotlight in my first language.

    Let alone at the ripe old age of 26. I was still a complete idiot at that age.

    He was the 15th pick overall when he was drafted. That should give a lot of hope to fans of teams that don't get to draft early.
