Bucks fans celebrate ring ceremony, win over Nets
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Bucks merchandise was a hot commodity the day after the defending world champions held their ring ceremony.
"That ceremony was just fun," fan Sandy French said. "It was very electric. I mean, the crowd was crazy. But the best part was how excited the players were."
Fans say they drew from the players' emotions.
"We saw Giannis kind of getting a little emotional," fan Alfredo Aranda said. "It kind of made me even emotional. It was, you know, a lot of heart and guts was put on the field."
They enjoyed watching Giannis embrace Jim Paschke, the longtime play-by-play announcer who was unable to celebrate when the Bucks won the title.
"Just to hear him call so many amazing games and to see him be as much a part of the Bucks team is is really awesome," fan Luke Strege said.
Then the Bucks sent fans home with a convincing win over the team favored to win the Eastern Conference, the Brooklyn Nets.
