MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks will go to the White Home on Nov. 8 to rejoice their NBA championship, the primary title for the franchise in 50 years.
“We’re very excited, very appreciative of the invite,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer stated Saturday. “We all know it is an honor and particular, and we’re wanting ahead to visiting the White Home.”
The Bucks received the title by beating the Phoenix Suns in six video games within the NBA Finals, concluding with a Sport 6 victory in Milwaukee on July 20 when Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 factors.
The Bucks will play the Wizards in Washington on Nov. 7 and participate within the White Home ceremony the next day earlier than touring to Philadelphia.
Milwaukee would be the first NBA champion to be feted on the White Home since 2016, when the Cleveland Cavaliers visited former President Barack Obama.
The Golden State Warriors (2017 and ’18) and Toronto Raptors (2019) didn’t go to below former President Donald Trump, and the Los Angeles Lakers (2020) didn’t go as a result of journey points associated to the COVID-19 pandemic.
