The Bucks last won a basketball championship in 1971. It’s been a long stretch of mediocrity ever since. But Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton have taken the organization to new heights. And now the Bucks are on the verge of an NBA championship.
The “Deer District” came out in full force Tuesday night to cheer on the Bucks. We’re not just talking a few thousand, either. We’re talking about tens of thousands who were willing to stand outside the arena to watch the game on a big screen.
This is one of the most impressive fan turnouts we’ve ever seen, regardless of sport. Take a look.

If the Bucks win a championship tonight, this will go down as one of the biggest parties in sports history. No, we’re not exaggerating.
So can Milwaukee get the job done in tonight’s Game 6? Momentum is on the Bucks’ side.
Milwaukee won three straight to take a 3-2 series lead into Tuesday night’s game. The Bucks have used their massive size and defensive tenacity to their advantage, often frustrating the Suns’ screen-heavy style of play.
