"Giannis Thanks Coach Budenholzer After Five Years Together in Milwaukee, Winning 2021 NBA Championship"
The Milwaukee Bucks said goodbye to head coach Mike Budenholzer last week, but not before capping off his five-year tenure with a 2021 NBA Championship. Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo took to Instagram to thank the outgoing coach for his five meaningful years in Milwaukee.
"We accomplished something unbelievable and I'm forever grateful," Antetokounmpo wrote. During Budenholzer's five-year run, the Bucks went 271-120 (.693) in the regular season -- the best record in the league during that time -- and won the 2021 Finals, the city's first championship in fifty years.
Budenholzer also took to Instagram to thank the city of Milwaukee and the Bucks organization, saying "The city of Milwaukee and he entire Bucks organization took us in and treated us like we were part of their own family. Together we won a lot. Together we won an NBA championship." Both Antetokounmpo and Budenholzer will always remember the celebration that followed their championship with the entire city of Milwaukee coming out to support their team.
