The Milwaukee Bucks visited the White House on Monday to celebrate their NBA championship from the 2020-21 season. With the visit, the Bucks became the first team in the league since 2016 to celebrate their championship at the White House. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. also had the chance to meet with President Joe Biden, who received an honorary Milwaukee Bucks jersey.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, led by LeBron James, visited the White House and celebrated their NBA championship with President Barack Obama while he was still in office in 2016.

But since that Cavs trip, no NBA title team has made the trek to D.C.

  • The Golden State Warriors won NBA titles in 2017 and 2018 and chose not to visit President Donald Trump.
  • The Toronto Raptors won it all in 2019 and also chose not to visit President Trump.
  • The Los Angeles Lakers didn’t visit in 2020 after their championship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are some highlights from the Bucks’ special afternoon:

The Bucks won their first NBA title last season since 1971 when they defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games during the 2021 NBA Finals. In the clinching game, star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo put together a performance for the ages as he scored 50 points.

The Bucks faced the Washington Wizards on Sunday and will travel to take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.
