Video Transcript

GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO: Chris, we did it, huh. We did it.

[CROWD CHEERING]

LIZ LOZA: For the first time in 50 years, the Milwaukee Bucks are NBA Champions.

- Let the celebration begin.

LIZ LOZA: Before we explore the Bucks and all their championship glory, let's recognize the Phoenix Suns for a moment. Phoenix, what a run you had. I mean, between the Jenner-Booker romance, the "Suns in Four" mean, the straight cash, homey dude, and CP3, given all he had. We are sad to see the sun set on you.

[CLAPPING]

LIZ LOZA: On the winning side, Giannis Antetokounmpo has already cemented his place as one of the NBA's greats with a resume that includes NBA MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Finals MVP, and NBA Champion, all at 26 years old.

In game 6, the Greek Freak lived up to his nickname becoming only the seventh player to score 50 points or more in NBA Finals history. Check out these stats. Giannis scored 50, grabbed 14 rebounds, and logged 5 blocks.

And 5 blocks worth of Milwaukeeans were smashed together like a cheese log outside the stadium, celebrating the title. Stay safe Bucks fans, and enjoy your championship.

The reigning NFL champions made a stop at the White House yesterday. And naturally, Tom Brady made headlines.

TOM BRADY: Not a lot of people you know, think that we could have won. And in fact, I think about 40% of the people still don't think we won.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: I understand that.

TOM BRADY: You understand that, Mr President?

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: I understand that.

TOM BRADY: Yeah.

LIZ LOZA: Aah, and all election disinformation crack. That is pretty rich coming from a guy, who started selling a new immune booster when the pandemic hit. Oh, and who's TB12 business partner Alex Guerrero was once fined by the Federal Trade Commission for falsely claiming his products cured cancer and AIDS, amongst other things.

- That's not good.

LIZ LOZA: But wait, eek, there's more.

TOM BRADY: We had a game in Chicago where I forgot what down it was, I lost track of one down in 21 years of playing. And they started calling me, "Sleepy Tom."

[LAUGHTER]

TOM BRADY: Why would they do that to me?

LIZ LOZA: I don't know, Tom. Maybe it has something to do with this?

[MUSIC PLAYING]

LIZ LOZA: Did you know that the 2020 Tokyo Games have officially started?

[CLAPPING]

LIZ LOZA: Yes. Oh, the more important question is, will the games actually finish?

COVID is trying hard as hell true and absolutely everything. Enter Mark Cuban, the Iron Man to COVID's Thanos.

[EXPLOSION]

Bills receiver Cole Beasley tweeted that he'll get vaccinated if Pfizer quote, put a percentage of its earnings from the vaccine in his wife's name.

- What is that even mean?

LIZ LOZA: I don't know Lisa. But the Mavericks owner hit Cole back on Twitter with actual facts, and an offer to buy Cole's wife a share of Pfizer stock.

Mark, I'm already vax up, but maybe you can help your girl out with some extra shares?
