BUCKS IN SIX!!! Celebrate your 2021 NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks with LIVE coverage of the victory Parade & Celebration Thursday, July 22nd beginning at 11 a.m. on My24.
Join in the festivities as we cheer on the Cream City's newly crowned champions, who secured the Bucks' second league title in franchise history with the series-clinching 105-98 Game 6 victory over the Phoenix Suns Tuesday night in front of an electric crowd at the Fiserv Forum.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the charge with a 50-point scoring performance and secured himself the NBA Finals MVP award becoming the first player ever to average 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game, all while shooting 61.8% from the floor. The Greek Freak cemented his place in annals of history with his performances on both sides of the court throughout the series, helping the Bucks rebound from an 0-2 start and doing it all on a hyperextended left knee that knocked him out of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The championship run marks the completion of an 8 year journey that saw teammates Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton experience a 15-win first season in Giannis' rookie season to winning 16 games in the postseason alone en route to securing the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the franchise for the first time in 50 years.
The live presentation comes courtesy of the team at Bally Sports Wisconsin, the network home of the Milwaukee Bucks and Brewers, which will cover the events in downtown Milwaukee. Craig Coshun and Steve Novak will host from Gather in the Deer District, with Zora Stephenson and Dario Melendez reporting from the parade route. Thursday's parade will step off at the intersection of E. Wisconsin Avenue and N. Prospect Avenue and will end at the Milwaukee River on E. Knapp Street.
Current and alumni players, coaches, owners, executives, and more will take part in the parade as well as the championship stage celebration to share the victory and title with the fan base. The championship celebration is expected to begin around 12:30 p.m. in Block 6 of Deer District.
Beyond My24, fans can watch live locally on our sister station CW18, as well as Bally Sports Wisconsin and stream via the Bally Sports app. Additional content will be available throughout the day on Twitter @BallySportWI and on Instagram @BallySportsWisconsin.
