Milwaukee Bucks Celebrate NBA Championship With Parade

6 monate vor


Thousands of fans lined downtown streets in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Thursday to catch a glimpse of their beloved Bucks in a parade to celebrate the city's first NBA championship in half a century. Six police officers on horseback clopped past cheering fans at the head of a procession that included a hook-and-ladder firetruck, occasionally blaring its horn, and open-air buses and flatbed trucks carrying Bucks stars, including Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday, as well as the trophy they captured Tuesday night with a Game 6 victory over Phoenix. Fans could be heard chanting, "Bucks in 6," an odd but beloved rallying cry with roots in a former Bucks player's fruitless prediction in 2013 that the team would take down the playoffs' top seed at the time. The team's ascendance has invigorated a Midwestern city far from the league's more cosmopolitan venues like Los Angeles, Boston or Miami — cities that have traditionally found it easier to attract the game's top players.
