After 50 years, the city of Milwaukee gets to celebrate a professional sports championship thanks to the exploits of Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. I’m still in “pinching myself” territory over here, and am unbelievably bummed I won’t be able to make it back to Milwaukee to crowd around with the masses for what’s sure to be hours of sunny joy starting at 11 am Central. For those that are local, here is the information regarding the parade route through the city:
Let's keep the party going!!— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) July 21, 2021
Join us at 11am tomorrow for the parade and celebration!!

It looks like you’ll be able to stream all the festivities at least from the Bucks app (there’s an embedded video player in it already), and I expect that something will hopefully go up on the Bucks website too. If so, I’ll update the article with that information then. It looks like you can watch it on Bucks.com.
After the parade route concludes, we’ll get to watch the following celebration around Fiserv Forum. As someone who watched the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl festivities up close complete with this acidic celebratory Jason Kelce speech, I can only hope we get some similarly beautiful, drunken soundbites from Bucks up and down the roster.
I’m thinking back to Giannis two years ago, celebrating his first MVP, staying humble by saying don’t call me MVP until I win it again. Here we are, with a two-time MVP, Finals MVP and world champion.
Feel free to use this thread to post your favorite moments from all the festivities, and especially if anyone is on the ground in Milwaukee, give us faraway folks some insight!
