For the first time since 1971, the Milwaukee Bucks have finally savored another moment of seeing their championship banner shine after a daunting journey to reach the basketball summit.
And the souvenir that accumulates all the hard work and sacrifice of the current best team in the NBA is indeed exceptional, and certainly a modernized one.
Conceptualized by Jason of Beverly Hills, Milwaukee’s championship ring can be worn as a beautiful necklace. But what stands most is its high-technology QR code feature.
And the man responsible for that mind-blowing idea is none other than the franchise’s superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
If scanned via smartphone, it will present the Cream City’s indelible moments from the last postseason run, highlighted by the clinching of the Larry O’Brien trophy after outlasting the Phoenix Suns, 4-2, in the NBA Finals. In addition, it will give the viewer an in-depth look at the jewelry.
The Bucks started their bid for back-to-back supremacy in a wire-to-wire opening night victory against the Brooklyn Nets, 127-104. The Greek Freak finished the game with 32 markers, 14 boards, and 7 assists to lead the reigning champs. Meanwhile, star forward Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton had 20 points each.
The Bucks will travel to Miami for a bout against the Heat on Thursday.
