Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks secured the franchise's first championship in 50 years Tuesday night, and the party has continued into Thursday in Milwaukee.

Antetokounmpo celebrated his first Finals MVP in style at a local Chick-fil-A on Wednesday morning, starting a "Bucks in 6" chant as he waited for 50 chicken minis. He was a bit more subdued to start the Bucks' championship parade Thursday, noting his happiness for the city of Milwaukee. 

"Our fans are out here supporting us and they've supported us since day one," Antetokounmpo said. "Being able to accomplish something great like this for this city, it feels good."

Antetokounmpo's teammates had no problem taking center stage as they celebrated their championship. Milwaukee forward P.J. Tucker came to the parade armed with plenty of champagne while Bobby Portis sported a giant WWE championship belt. After a grueling postseason, the Bucks are making sure to celebrate in style Thursday.

The Bucks took the stage in downtown Milwaukee to culminate Thursday's parade. It seems as though Antetokounmpo found his second wind when it was time to take the podium as he gave a rousing speech to the Bucks' faithful. Giannis's magic touch applies to far more than the basketball court. He continues to be a delightful public speaker, delivering memorable monologues at every turn. 

This post will be updated throughout the day.
