Indianapolis-based streetwear brand Saint Avenue has teamed up with Utah-based knitwear manufacturer Coleman Knitting Mills to produce an exclusive Milwaukee Bucks Championship jacket for the entire team. The two companies wanted to commemorate the Bucks’ historic win by curating jackets exclusive to the players.
“Let me have a large drink, no ice, half Sprite, half lemonade,” Giannis said to a Chick-fil-A employee. “We all know this drink by now … and it officially has a name!” the Pewaukee Chick-fil-A Facebook page stated. “The 50-50 (half sprite & half Chick-fil-A lemonade) is the official drink of CHAMPIONS! Stop by today to snag this winning blend!”
It may not be the Chick-fil-A Giannis Antetokounmpo has been angling for, but another fast food chain is offering the NBA Finals MVP free meals for life. Culver’s says the manager of its Shorewood location in suburban Milwaukee is offering him all the Butterburgers and custard he can eat.
After a stellar first season, the NBA named Charlotte Hornets star point guard LaMelo Ball the 2021 Rookie of the Year. Now, FOCO is revealing a limited edition bobblehead to celebrate his accomplishment. The “LaMelo Ball Charlotte Hornets Rookie of the Year Bobblehead” features LaMelo flexing in his Hornets uniform and holding his Rookie of the Year trophy.
Lines for Bucks gear at the team’s pro shop and other outfitters have stretched around the block as fans want to buy T-shirts, hats and other gear to commemorate the moment. That could be almost $1 billion in jersey sales, according to estimates from Sidelines. The sports betting and data website uses Google Trends and other search data to estimate the increase in sales and uses NBA data of past sales.
Demand for Bucks jerseys increased 2,530% in the hours after the win over the Phoenix Suns Tuesday, according to Sidelines. Fans just within the City of Milwaukee could buy an estimated $73 million in Bucks jerseys. The entire state of Wisconsin could buy about 10 times that, according to Sidelines estimates.
