Phoenix Suns was having a Hella season and their head coach, Monty Williams, not only exceeded expectations but also showed great class and grace when he congratulated the Milwaukee Bucks on winning the NBA championship. After the game and trophy celebration, Williams went to the Bucks locker room to greet the new champions.
Williams had his arm around NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo when he said, “I just wanted to come and congratulate you guys because you deserve it. I am grateful for the experience. You made me a better coach and you made us a better team. Congratulations. “
It was an unfortunate end to a great season for the Suns as the team lost four games in a row after holding a 2-0 lead. It’s one thing for the losing coach to congratulate his opponent on the pitch, but Williams did everything.
