MILWAUKEE — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address congratulating the Milwaukee Bucks on their incredible National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals game six win Tuesday evening, securing the NBA Championship. The Bucks came back to win the series after trailing 2-0 in the series, and it is the Bucks’ first NBA Championship title in 50 years since they last won in 1971.
Additionally, the governor also declared today, Thurs., July 22, 2021, as “Bucks in Six” Day in Wisconsin.
Hey, Wisconsin! It’s Governor Tony Evers.
And holy mackerel, folks, after five long decades, history has been made and the “Bucks in Six” prophecy fulfilled because of our Milwaukee Bucks—our NBA Champions.
This is the Bucks’ first NBA finals win in 50 years—a historic and well-deserved win for this team and Milwaukee.
But this victory means more for our state than just a win for the record books.
It’s been a difficult year for all of us, and we’ve faced unprecedented challenges, but we’ve all watched the Bucks and these players—their charm, humor, eccentricity, resilience, and grit—who have been a source of hope, unity, and happiness when we’ve needed it the most.
Tuesday’s victory encapsulates the spirit of this team and the strength, resilience, unity, and pride of these players, the Bucks, the city of Milwaukee, and our state.
Today, Wisconsinites and Bucks fans everywhere celebrate the Bucks’ remarkable season and historic win in the 2021 NBA Finals.
And on behalf of the entire state of Wisconsin, I would just like to say… Bucks in six!
