As the Milwaukee Bucks wrap up the 55th regular season in franchise history, it’s time to take a look back on the last 82 games and reminisce about the best moments from their title defense season!

It sure was a roller coaster of a regular season for the defending champs, but they battled through all of the injuries, illnesses, and inconsistencies to secure a top-three seed in the East and give themselves a path to defend that title.

But before we look ahead to the playoffs, let’s have some fun and go through four of the best moments from the 2021-22 regular season!

(These are in chronological order, not from which ones I think are better.)

The Milwaukee Bucks get their championship rings and blow out the Brooklyn Nets

Obviously, this was special for everyone from the team to the fans, everyone was excited for this game and for the team to get their rings, but this will forever hold a special place in my heart because it was my first live game in Milwaukee.

I’ve seen the Bucks basically every time they’ve come to Toronto, but being able to see them at home and around other Bucks fans was super cool for me.

But aside from that personal note, it was still one of the highlights of this season.

The touching moment when former play-by-play man Jim Paschke revealed the “I heart Giannis” shirt after Giannis Antetokounmpo wore an “I heart Jim Paschke” shirt during his NBA Finals press conference after Game 6 was fantastic.

Seeing all of the guys who have been on this team the last couple of seasons that came up short in the Eastern Conference Finals be rewarded for their hard work but especially Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Oh, and then they went out and whooped the Brooklyn Nets! That was a whole lot of fun! Jordan Nwora rejected Kevin Durant at the rim! I was fired up!

That’s a night that no Bucks fan will ever forget.
