Roommates, a huge congratulations are in order for the Milwaukee Bucks, who just won their first NBA Championship title in 50 years! The Milwaukee Bucks officially beat the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to snatch the championship—and fans of the team are showering them with love and support.
With a final score of 105 to 98, the Milwaukee Bucks did what many believed was impossible…winning their very first NBA Championship since 1971. Defeating the Phoenix Suns, the Milwaukee Bucks claimed the trophy with the help of superstar player Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored a massive 50 points during the game. He also earned 14 rebounds and five blocked shots.

That wasn’t all Giannis managed to do on the court, as he also shot 17-of-19 free throws — and was awarded the Bill Russel Finals MVP trophy. Speaking about his team’s historic win, he said “I want to thank Milwaukee for believing in me. I wanted to do it here in this city. I wanted to do it with these guys.”
To give a bit of backstory of just how long it’s been since the Milwaukee Bucks won an NBA Championship, take this into consideration. Back in 1971 during their win, Richard Nixon was president and legendary basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the new rising star in the league.
Congrats to the team!
