ABC play-by-play commentator Mike Breen said it best: "It's over, the Bucks have done it! The long wait has ended after a half-century. The Milwaukee Bucks are NBA champions once again!"


Giannis Antetokounmpo's performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last night was something purely majestic. After falling down two games in a row to the Phoenix Suns to commence the 2021 NBA Finals, it looked dire for the Bucks from Milwaukee. But all they needed was for the Greek Freak to emerge, and the rest was history.
