In the midst of Milwaukee's euphoric championship celebration on Tuesday, siblings Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo shared a heartwarming moment and melted the internet. Giannis received the Finals MVP trophy after leading the Bucks to their first NBA championship in 50 years and immediately called his brother, who was forced to miss the team's championship game after being placed in health and safety protocol due to COVID-19, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The two teammates laughed, cried and danced while chatting on Instagram Live to celebrate Milwaukee's 105-98 win over the Phoenix Suns. They also rapped to the lyrics of "For the Night" by Pop Smoke featuring Lil Baby.

Thanasis, who was experiencing a range of emotions during the celebration, laughed while telling his brother not to come.
"No you're not, I'm not opening the door," he said.
