One current NBA player who wishes to emulate the Michael Jordan cigar celebration is the face of the Milwaukee Bucks - Giannis Antetokounmpo.

In a recent interview with ESPN, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo spoke about his NBA championship hopes. Giannis spoke about how he would like to party in Mykonos, back home in Greece, with the rest of his Bucks teammates. Giannis was quoted as saying, "Before all this happened with COVID-19, I was talking about taking the team on a trip to Greece in Mykonos. Mykonos is one of the best islands in Greece, it's a party island. You cannot go there with your significant other, you got to be by yourself. It's got to be a boys' trip."

Giannis further added that he would love to emulate the Michael Jordan cigar celebration if Bucks win an NBA championship in the near future. The NBA’s reigning MVP added, "Obviously, we have Santorini, Santorini's really romantic. It has the best sunset and sunrise in the world. You can take your significant other there. I had the opportunity to go last year – I went with [Eric] Bledsoe and Brook [Lopez] to Mykonos – and I was kind of sad I wasn't able to bring the whole team to experience what we went through. So definitely, I think, after we win the championship and we're holding the trophy and we're all smoking a cigar like MJ, we can all do that in Mykonos."
