After 50 years of anguish, 50 years of agony, 50 years of despair, finally you must now Fear the Deer. The Milwaukee Bucks ended their 50-year drought for an NBA title as they defeated the Phoenix Suns 105-98 in game 6 in the NBA Finals on Tuesday. The Budenholzer coached Bucks have reached the pinnacle of the NBA for the first time since Kareem “Sky-hook” Abdul-Jabbar led them to the title in April 1971.

The Bucks were led by the best player in the world Giannis Antetokounmpo with a staggering 50 points and 14 rebounds. Even though he made most headlines for the fifty-piece he scored, and he ordered from Chick-Fil-A, it was Jrue Holiday who was the deciding factor, putting on a monstrous defensive performance to restrict Suns G Devin Booker to just 19 points and shooting 0 of 7 from 3-point range.

Holiday also contributed heavily on the offensive end as he delivered 27 points and 13 assists to help carry the Bucks to their milestone. The unsung heroes of the finals who won’t get the plaudits are Bobby Portis Jr. who stepped up heavily from the Conference Finals when the “Greek Freak” injured his knee. Portis averaged 7.7 points in the finals including 16 in the series clincher. Khris Middleton, the Robin to Giannis’ Batman, scored only eleven points in game six, however his clutch shot with under a minute to go when it seemed the Suns were making an unprecedented comeback, to put the Bucks back up by 6 and virtually seal the game.

Within all the euphoria of the Larry O’Brien trophy coming to Wisconsin, fingers were pointed on the Suns, not for losing to a masterful MVP and his role players, but the way Phoenix blew a 2-0 series lead in one of the biggest times of each of those players career. It could be down to Devin Booker who was virtually a non-existent player when it came to the defending, Jae Crowder who was always in foul trouble early in the game, or it could be down to NBA Awarded “coach of the year” Monty Williams who is 0-3 when his teams are facing elimination. Enough said I must say congratulations to the Milwaukee Bucks for winning the 2021 NBA Championship and for showing that you don’t need a super team to achieve success.

Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
