Hundreds of thousands of Bucks fans packed downtown Milwaukee Thursday for the team’s NBA Championship parade.
Giannis Antetokounmpo held his son, 1-year-old Liam, atop a bus as fans along the route chanted “MVP!” Later, he shot a basketball into the crowd.
“Milwaukee, we did it, baby! We did it!” Antetokounmpo said to a cheering crowd in Deer District, the area outside the Bucks’ Fiserv Forum. “This is our city, this is our city. Man, we did it! Unbelievable.”
Thanasis still gets to celebrate despite COVID-19
Reserve forward Thanasis Antetokounpo didn’t get to celebrate the team’s win on Tuesday night on the court since he was in COVID-19 health and safety protocols, although Giannis went on Instagram Live that night to share the moment with him after the Game.
But Thanasis was there on Thursday. While he didn’t get to share the stage with the team after the parade, he was following the Team bus, taking in the party from a jeep. He was one of the most hyped players there, spraying Champagne into the air after younger brother Giannis told the crowd, “Milwaukee we did it, baby.”
