The Bucks will be entitled to their ring tonight at 12:45 am: fall conclusion of a hot summer!

Tonight, it’s the big night ! After winning the NBA title in July, the Milwaukee Bucks will embark on the defense of their own. But before the battle, make way for the reward with the delivery of the champion’s ring and the addition of a new banner. Wisconsin fans watch out for the ugly dust in the eye!

Tuesday, October 19, 2021, ninety days have passed since the last massacre of Giannis Antetokounmpo during Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Suns (4-2). During this meeting, the Greek had scored 50 points and offered the second title in the history of the Bucks … fifty years after the first. A crowning achievement for the 26-year-old who then won the champion’s trophy and that of the MVP of the Finals, before taking it easy in Mykonos. A deserved ring for the Athens Freak who makes his childhood dream come true. The icing on the cake, it is with his brother Thanasis that he is preparing to receive the jewel this evening. We therefore live in a world where the three Antetokounmpo brothers have an NBA Champion title (Kostas with LA in 2020). The details of the ring have not been revealed but the franchise will undoubtedly be keen to mark the occasion. Last year, the Lakers opted for one of the most expensive rings in history. The Bucks will then attend the ritual of the champion’s banner which will fly to the ceiling of the Fiserv Forum to keep company with that of 1971.

Ninety days later, we meet again in Wisconsin, in Milwaukee, for an always special ceremony. This year, Axel Toupane will have an eye on the speeches and celebrations of his former teammates. The French, NBA champion in 2021, should not receive his ring today since he is no longer part of the workforce. For the occasion, the Lair of the Daims intends to fill its 17,500 places for a boiling atmosphere. As for the fans who will not be able to enter the arena, festivities and a broadcast are planned outside the hall according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The backbone of the 2021 Champions is still there, GM John Horst has just extended his contract and the Bucks have signed an extension to Grayson Allen’s rookie contract. Good news everywhere, without forgetting the shoot of Giannis which would be more and more reliable, there will be things to celebrate this night.

The Nets in the front row

Right after the festivities, The Bucks will go straight to the main course by attacking the Nets of a revengeful Kevin Durant. Everyone has in mind the image of KD’s foot biting the 3-point line in Game 7, in the second round of the Playoffs. A few centimeters that cost Brooklyn dearly. If he didn’t have such big feet, maybe KD and his friends would have gone to the jeweler. All this is only ancient history and the two teams are turned towards this 2021-22 season, with a single goal in their sights: Larry O’Brien. History, rivalry, emotion, superstars (vaccinated), a full house … No doubt, the greatest show in the world is back.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and his friends will receive their NBA Champion rings tonight around one in the morning. A first jewel that joins an already full trophy cabinet for the Greek Freak, namely two MVPs, a DPOY, a MIP and a postcard from Feurs.
