History has been made this year, and more history will be made on Tuesday night. Milwaukee was allowed to hoist an NBA championship banner for the first time in 50 years.
The stadium roared with excitement as the Bucks raised cover and unveiled their 2021 NBA championship banner in the west rafters.
“I did watched the Bucks since I was born. It’s literally the highlight of my day, the highlight of my life, “said Madeline Taubenheim.
The pre-game ceremony featured video highlights of the season and reminder banners for the first 10,000 championships.
“But seeing that was crazy. Those things, man, what an amazing night. It means everything,” said Fan Egal Warsame.
As players were brought down one by one, the phones went off of fans high. Favorites like Giannis, Kris Middleton and Jrue Holiday received the loudest applause. So did a former Bucks owner.
“It’s beautiful man, we’ve worked so hard for it. We need it,” said fan Yasser Stewart.
When asked about tickets for Tuesday’s game said fan Jack Thompson: “Not that difficult. We have them like last week.
“I think every fan who has come to the Deer District or the Bucks Arena should at least get something, like maybe a diamond or just a whole ring,” said one fan .
“I was at the parade downtown in 1971. It was really nice. Now I had the chance to do it again in 2021,” said fan Freddie Teamer.
Covid restrictions have eased. The players’ seats are back where they were and fans who have been vaccinated don’t have to wear a mask.
“I mean, I feel very comfortable. I mean, I have my mask with me, I got my two vaccines, I’m going to get the booster. I just feel good where I’m sitting. I just feel like there is distance. I’m not worried, “said fan Sharon Rosbenda.
Many fans say without a doubt that the Bucks have what it takes to be a consecutive championship team.
