After a 50-year drought, the Milwaukee Bucks have won another NBA Championship! On Tuesday evening, Milwaukee secured their rings with a win in Game 6 to take the series, 4-2. Giannis Antetokounmpo was named regular-season NBA MVP ahead of the series. He can now add another trophy to his collection as NBA Finals MVP, and can finally call himself champion. In honor of that, an NBA 2K21 MyTeam Locker code is part of the content celebrating the champs.
Milwaukee Bucks capture NBA Championship
Despite originally being down 0-2 to the Phoenix Suns, the Milwaukee Bucks battled back, winning the next four games of the NBA Finals. That included Tuesday night’s 105-98 win in Game 6 to clinch the title.
The Milwaukee Bucks’ Greek Freak put an exclamation point on things with his 50 points and 14 rebounds in the game in 42 minutes on the court. His teammates also contributed including All-Star Khris Middleton and role player Bobby Portis. Still, it was clearly Giannis’ MVP Award following that finish.
After the win was official, NBA 2K posted a tribute screenshot of the Bucks with the championship trophy.
Ahead of the 2021 NBA playoffs, most oddsmakers were considering Bucks amongst championship contenders, but they weren’t at the top. Those spots were held by LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers and Kevin Durant’s Brooklyn Nets. Even 2K’s playoff bracket sim produced the Nets as champs.
Neither team lived up to the hype, though. The Phoenix Suns made a strong run as well, thanks to Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and others. However, they’ll have to regroup and figure out where they went wrong.
NBA 2K21 MyTeam Locker Code, Bucks Agendas, Giannis Invincible reward
