NBA Announcer Trolls Dr. Fauci on Live Air As 65,000 Fans Gather Outside of Championship Game

On Tuesday evening, the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns in game six of the NBA championship game.

The final game was hosted in Milwaukee where 65,000 fans gathered outside of the arena to watch and celebrate the big game.

The Daily Wire reports:

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was out of this world, posting an absurd stat line of 50 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 blocks, shooting 17-19 from the free throw line. It was the culmination of years of adversity and loyalty from Antetokounmpo, who chose to re-sign with the Bucks in the offseason instead of leaving in free agency.

The entire series was a phenomenal watch, with the Bucks battling back from a 2-0 deficit to win four straight. The arenas in both Phoenix and Milwaukee were packed with fans, an occurrence that seemed impossible just a few months ago.

The Bucks home games were particularly chaotic, with tens of thousands of fans standing outside the arena watching the game on a big screen. Before game six, it was announced that the “Deer District” — the area outside of the arena — would be expanded to allow 65,000 fans instead of the 25,000 allowed at previous playoff games.

At one point during the ESPN broadcast of the game, ESPN announcer Jeff Van Gundy appeared to troll Dr. Anthony Fauci as he commented on the 65,000 fans gathered outside of the arena.

“Dr. Fauci is cringing at home as he’s watching our game,” Van Gundy said as the 65,000 fans were shown on the broadcast.


The comments from Van Gundy come as Fauci is starting to ramp up his dooms day rhetoric surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic once again.

While joining CNBC for a recent interview, Fauci told fully vaccinated Americans that they may “want to consider” wearing masks indoors to combat against the Delta COVID-19 strain. The comments come after Fauci and other “experts” have told vaccinated Americans that there is no need to wear a mask once vaccinated.

“If you want to go the extra mile of safety even though you’re vaccinated when you’re indoors, particularly in crowded places, you might want to consider wearing a mask,” Fauci said during the interview.

During the same interview, Fauci also stated that the Delta variant of COVID-19 is more infectious than the original version of COVID.

“This virus is clearly different than the viruses and the variants that we’ve had experience with before. It has an extraordinary capability of transmitting from person to person,” Fauci said.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

The variant currently accounts for 83% of all new infections in the US., according to the CDC. On Wednesday, the U.S. recorded 52,032 new COVID-19 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Fauci’s advice doesn’t align with the Centers for Disease for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which says that fully vaccinated people don’t need to wear masks except for very specific situations, such as when required by law.

But Dr. Jerome Adams, former Surgeon General, said Sunday that “the emerging data suggests CDC should be advising to vax it and mask it.” Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in late June that fully-vaccinated people should wear masks in public settings.
