    Milwaukee Bucks forward, Giannis Sina Antetokounmpo, has been named the NBA’s most valuable player of the 2018-19 season, and it got him tears.

    The 24-year-old born to to Nigerian migrant parents, made an emotional acceptance speech after becoming the youngest MVP in eight years.

    He. wept on stage as he paid a moving tribute to this late father, Charles, who died in 2017. "I want to thank my dad. Obviously, my dad is not here with me.

    Two years ago, I had a goal in my head that I was going to be the best player in the league and do whatever it takes to help my team win, and I’m going to win everything.

    Every day I step on the floor, I always think of my dad and that motivates me and pushes me to play harder and move forward. Even when my body is sore, even when I don’t feel like playing, I always show up and do the right thing.

    I want to thank my team, my team-mates. MVP is not about stats and numbers. It is all about winning and all about making sure you go out there and do everything you can to win. I think that is what we did as a team,” he said.
