Thousands and thousands of fans came to the tour of the retinue celebrating the Milwaukee bucks to cheer their idols and celebrate the newly proclaimed NBA champions.
Police and firefighters joined the party accompanying the homeless bus from where Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and company offered the Larry O’Brien trophy to the fans. Holiday, along with Khris Middleton, will fly to Tokyo from Seattle with his Finals victim, Devin Booker.
Among the loudest songs, the fans opted for the ‘Bucks in 6’ which has already become one of the slogans of the franchise, given over to euphoria after achieving its second title in history. Between the two, from 1971 to 2021, 50 years of drought have passed.
“Milwaukee, we did it!”, howled Anteto, hero and MVP of the Finals. “This is our city, and we have done it! Is incredible!”
In a scene more typical of pre-pandemic times, the fans turned en masse with the players, from the few who wore a mask during the celebration with cases in the United States tripling.
There was plenty of champagne and jokes of all kinds, with Anteto launching his now famous 10-second free throws that rival fans tried to use against him. Yesterday was his sweetest free kick.
