There were plenty of “Where were you when” stories written Tuesday night after the Milwaukee Bucks captured their first NBA championship in 50 years. While some were able to grab seats at area bars in Door and Kewaunee counties, others like Brandon Stillman of Fish Creek found himself in the middle of the action. Stillman was lucky enough to attend a number of games during this year’s playoff run including all three NBA Finals games at the Fiserv Forum. His classmates at Arizona State University gave him a hard time as the Suns took a 2-0 lead in the Finals, especially since Stillman worked for the Suns for a portion of their season in guest services. Stillman bought in on “Bucks in Six” from day one and he is thankful for the memories he was able to make along the way.
The coronation of the NBA’s newest champion will continue on Thursday when the Bucks and the City of Milwaukee hosts a parade and a celebration kicking off at 11 a.m. Stillman says he has already taken off of work so he can attend.
