Well deserved. Bucks fans enjoy the next 12 months.

But buckle up, the naysayers are going to get their shots in about asterisks, everything and anything in between, and nothing will be definitively resolved until the playoffs the next year.

Happy to sacrifice myself (an elite poster) for a Bucks championship. Congrats Bucks RealGM family. We **** lived to see it. Love to all, even the miserable of heart.
The Milwaukee Bucks are NBA Champions.

Giannis was the first player to get 50 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks in a finals game. Legendary performance.

This Bucks team is going to keep winning, they finally went over the hump, i felt the game really changed their tune was eastern conference final game 5, the one Giannis missed ... suddenly the Bucks figured out their offense and their defense and physicality are getting better and better, even if they lost the first two games in the final, you still felt they were well in it ... and Giannis started to play better and better... i feel this is not going to be their only championship run...

Congratulations to Giannis, that man deserves everything good for the cards he was dealt in life and then fighting through it.

Not sure the team was that thrilled having to ride with one guard all playoffs, Donte will be welcomed back like a long lost son.

Giannis is what 2 weeks removed from that freak knee injury which looked like a torn acl? I’m still mind blown that he able to make such a speedy recovery without losing a step. I feel like that’s one thing that’s going to get overlooked when we revisit this championship in a few years.

Congrats Bucks family. Much deserved, props for fighting back and coming back from 0-2 deficits multiple times. I've been very hard on Giannis the last couple of seasons but he has finally taken the next step, he is a really dominant superstar, I will never doubt him again. This Finals proves he is not only one of the best players in the league, but maybe also one of the greatest players ever. I will be his fan for the rest of his career.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Bucks fan since 2001 where they were jobbed from winning a title that year too 8-)
Bucks tricked me into being a diehard in 2001, LeBron is the 2nd best player ever, and pizza is awesome.

Giannis is kinda unwatchable to me. But this was just complete dominance. Literally looked like those instagram videos where an NBA prospect goes against kids his age and they all look like they suck. They also looked so helpless against his defense.

In addition, what an amazing team effort by the bucks. Guys did their job when needed, from Tucker to Holiday to Middelton. 7 games series so you dont have to play well every game, just have to win 4.

Congrats Bucks!
So many people who attain the heights of power in this culture—celebrities, for instance—have to make a show of false humility and modesty, as if they got as far as they did by accident and not by ego or ambition.

Holy crap, we did it!! I've been a Bucks fan since Kareem (but was too young during the last championship), so it's been a loooong time coming.

Good series, Suns fans! Almost every game was a battle.
