The Bucks receive their championship rings and start the season with a win over the Nets
A special night at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, where the Bucks received their NBA champion rings for the 2020-2021 season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, MVP of those finals, and the rest of the champion team were deservingly placing the precious pieces, with 360 diamonds each symbolizing the victories of the franchise since its change of ownership.
The rings also feature 16 other emerald-shaped diamonds, in honor of the 16 playoff victories achieved that round season.
But the party didn’t end there, as it was game night, and this time the victims were the Brooklyn Nets. 127 to 104 for the locals, with 32 points and 14 rebounds from an Antetokounmpo that seems to continue in the same state of form with which he ended last season.
Already in the first quarter, the Bucks came to be positioned with an advantage of 19 points over the visitors. Pat Connaughton and Khris Middleton, with 20 points each, also contributed to a clear victory against which nothing could do the 32 points of Kevin Durant, the 21 of Patty Mills, or the 20 of James Harden, who touched the triple-double with eight rebounds and eight assists. Kyrie Irving, who remains in his refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19, did not participate.
