The Milwaukee Bucks Win The 2020-2021 NBA Title
The last time the Milwaukee Bucks won an NBA Title, was when Kareem Abdul-Jabaar was a part of that team. 50 years on, the drought is over and the Bucks are back on top of the NBA.
They finished off their series against the Phoenix Suns 105-98 in an entertaining back and forth game, a theme which has been common throughout these NBA Finals. Big performances came from all the players in the rotation. Jrue Holiday showed throughout this series why he is the best 2-way point guard in the league, whilst others like Khris Middleton who, Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez just to name a few showed how important they are to this Bucks squad. It was the performance of the 2-time NBA MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, that had the sports world going crazy.

The Greek Freak finished with 50 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks. He became the first player with at least 40+ points, 10+ rebounds and 5+ blocks in the NBA Finals since the 1973-1974 season. He adds to his already Hall Of Fame worthy cabinet with this title, a cabinet which includes the NBA Most Improved Player Award, the NBA Defensive Player Of The Year Award, 2x NBA Most Valuable Player, 5x NBA All Star, the NBA All Star Most Valuable Player, the NBA Title and the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, all at the age of just 26 years old. Safe to say, he had all the skill he needed.
