Like all NBA teams, the 2020-21 season was met with great uncertainty for the Milwaukee Bucks. Travel and health protocols, along with limited stadium capacities and revenue for most of the season caused players and administration to adapt to a season like no other. 

Thanks to perseverance, a vision and commitment to excellence, the Bucks brought Milwaukee its first NBA championship in 50 years. 

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the season, including responding to on- and off-court changes due to the pandemic, the excitement of the Deer District and the euphoric celebration that united the Milwaukee community and beyond.
