The Golden State Warriors won their first NBA title in 50 years last night, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 113-101 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. That brings Wade from the Heat to the Bucks in 2010, and the Bucks have never been back to the playoffs since. But now, the team that will be marching to the NBA Finals has its own title.
The Milwaukee Bucks have accomplished something no other NBA team has been able to do: win an NBA title in their first 50 years of existence. The Bucks have a chance to win their second championship with a Game 6 win over the Toronto Raptors.
On Wednesday, joyous scenes erupted in downtown Milwaukee after the Bucks won their first NBA championship in 50 years, but the euphoria was marred by gunshots fired during the celebration.
Thousands of people gathered outside the Fiserv Forum to see the Bucks play the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the NBA Finals in 2021. Milwaukee supporters had a lot to cheer about after their team’s win. It also caused some confusion.
The ‘Deer District’ of the Milwaukee Bucks was crowded for Game 6.
Tuesday night’s game between the Bucks and the Suns drew a sellout crowd. However, it was a small throng compared to the one that gathered outside Fiserv in the “Deer District.”
Fans were denied away before halftime, according to WDJT’s Brendan Cullerton, when the Deer District reached full. Cullerton also talked with a number of supporters who were ecstatic about the events happening in Milwaukee.
Joanna Bautch, a fan, told Cullerton, “Couldn’t miss this chance.” “I don’t like crowds, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to support the Milwaukee Bucks. We had to show up because we are Milwaukee natives.”
Another admirer claimed to be a Deer District regular and said that the sights on Tuesday night were unlike anything else.
Brye Hardel told Cullerton, “This is amazing.” “I’m here for my eighth game in a row, and holy kamoley, this is insane.”
Throughout the playoffs, the Deer District has become a fixture of Bucks home games. It’s also a good representation of the team’s home-court advantage at Fiserv.
During the 2021 NBA playoffs, Milwaukee only lost one game at home. During the NBA Finals, the Bucks won all three games at Fiserv, winning the Larry O’Brien Trophy in front of their ecstatic supporters.
The celebrations were wild both inside and outside the stadium. However, those supporters who were rejoicing in the streets quickly became a source of worry.
During the championship celebrations, shots were fired near the Fiserv Forum.
Around 12:45 a.m. local time, “more than a dozen” gunshots were reported in downtown Milwaukee, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. During the victory celebration, shots were fired.
Local officials seemed to have a good grip on the situation. About 15 minutes after the shots were fired, three individuals were seen being arrested, according to the Journal Sentinel.
Three individuals were wounded in the incident, according to police, although none of the injuries were life-threatening. The shooting’s “circumstances” remain unknown to local police, but an investigation is ongoing, according to the Journal Sentinel.
At this moment, the police have provided no further information.
The event follows a terrifying scenario in Washington, D.C.

In the last four days, there has been a second shooting outside an American sports stadium.
A gunshot outside Nationals Park forced the postponement of Saturday’s baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the San Diego Padres. The event resulted in the injuries of at least three individuals.
After the gunfire were heard around the stadium, the Nats issued a statement during the game. Fans were escorted inside the Padres’ dugout by players.
In less than a week, we’ve seen two terrifying situations.
