Milwaukee Bucks set to visit White House to celebrate NBA Championship

The Milwaukee Bucks are the latest National Basketball Association team to announce they will visit the White House to celebrate their NBA Championship.

The team made the announcement on their official Twitter page on Friday afternoon.

“The Milwaukee Bucks organization is extremely excited to continue the tradition of visiting the White House in honor of a championship. The players of the team as well as owners, management, coaches and staff are looking forward to the opportunity to go back to Washington, D.C. and share our excitement with the fans of the United States and those around the world,” said the team in a statement.

The Milwaukee Bucks are the NBA’s Eastern Conference Champions for the fourth time since 1979. They defeated the Toronto Raptors 112-100 in Game 6 to win the series four games to one.

The Raptors, however, was a new threat after being ranked as the fifth best team in the NBA a year ago. It also had established scorer DeMar DeRozan.

The postseason was particularly hard-fought for Milwaukee as they were in their eighth game of the seven-game series. The Raptors took the first two games of the series.

From there, the series shifted to the Air Canada Centre in Toronto where it continued with another blowout. The Bucks won the next three games of the series, including the final one on Canadian soil.

There is no date as of yet for the Bucks to visit the White House.

The President said that all teams that win the NBA Championship should visit the White House. However, some teams turned down the opportunity.

Many teams said that they would not travel, saying the “Art of the Deal” has “too many unwritten rules” as Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors put it.

Such a decision may have been their way of saying, “We have a problem with the president!” to him and his policies.

Some will see these teams visiting the White House as another reason to boycott the trip and not go.
