The Milwaukee Bucks grabbed their first NBA title in 50 years Tuesday in front of a global audience.
The NBA Finals MVP ordered 50 Chick-n-Minis at Chick-fil-A — not 51, not 49, just exactly 50 to match the 50 points he scored in the Bucks' 105-98 win over the Phoenix Suns in Game 6.

Chris Paul had five turnovers and the Suns finished with 17 turnovers in a 109-103 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday night.
Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton said the foul trouble he had in Game 3 won’t impact the way he plays the rest of the NBA Finals.

Daniel never played in the NBA. The Bucks don’t list him on their all-time roster. But he’s got a championship ring from being part of the Bucks organization during its 1970-71 championship season
