Fear The Deer: The Milwaukee Bucks Are NBA Champions

Beer and Deer, forever linked as “Milwaukee’s Best.” Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks defeated Phoenix 105-98 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to secure their second NBA championship ever and their first since 1971. After starting the Finals in an 0-2 hole, Milwaukee took four straight from Phoenix to clinch the title.

Two-time league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, arguably the new face of the NBA, had one of the most dominant Finals games in league history. Giannis stuffed the stat sheet with 50 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks. For his performance, The Greek Freak was named Finals MVP. Khris Middleton chipped in 17 points and Jrue Holiday agitated Phoenix with his pesky defense.

Phoenix, which held a 47-42 halftime lead, was led by their dynamic backcourt duo of Chris Paul and Devin Booker, who combined for 45 points and 10 assists. With the loss, the Suns remain one of just 11 active NBA franchises that have never won a title.

More than 17,000 fans watched the Bucks finish off the Suns inside the arena, while another 65,000 celebrated outside in Milwaukee’s “Deer District.”

Drink up, Milwaukee – you’re truly the best.

  1. I love how all you do is whine and bitch. No ones trying to culturally appropriate anyone. Just simply stating Giannis would be a better face of the league. Which is pretty obvious if your not a Lebron jock sniffer.
