Tonight is opening night in the NBA, which means the Milwaukee Bucks will receive their rings and hang their championship banner after beating the Phoenix Suns in six games. The Bucks will be playing the Brooklyn Nets, the same team they took to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals that featured an overtime victory in Brooklyn. Kevin Durant was a shoe size away from leading the Nets to win in regulation instead of sending it to overtime.
According to Bally Sports Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson, the Bucks championship rings designed by Jason of Beverly Hills will feature a “QR code on it.”
“So you can watch a video of their season And a push-button system that allows the player to turn it into a pendant 50 stones to commemorate the last time they went to the finals, which was 1971,” said Robinson.
It has been 50 years since the last time the Bucks won a championship under the leadership of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson.
The 2020-21 Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday. Then Middleton and Holiday went to Japan and helped Team USA win a Gold Medal, joining only Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen as the only players to achieve this feat.
Robinson also reported that the Bucks also made history with Valerie Daniels-Carter, becoming the first African American woman as one of the minority owners.
The Bucks take on the Brooklyn Nets at 7:30 PM EST TNT.
