We Spent the Day with Bobby Portis

Bucks big man and fan favorite Bobby Portis knows how to bring the energy on and off the court. We spent the day with the NBA champ to see how he likes to spend his time in Milwaukee.


VISIT Milwaukee is thrilled to partner with Bucks glue-guy and Milwaukee hype man Bobby Portis to promote the city as a destination. The major centerpiece of this partnership is this video, promoting the many summer activities, local businesses, and attractions Milwaukee has to offer.

Arriving in Milwaukee in 2020, Bobby has quickly become a fan favorite and local icon. A key contributor to the city's first championship in 50 years, his relationship with the fans and love for the city of Milwaukee made this partnership a natural fit in keeping with the mission of both VISIT Milwaukee and our new sports division, Sports Milwaukee.

“Since Bobby has made a name for himself as a fan favorite and an emotional leader with the Milwaukee Bucks, we thought it would be fun to have Bobby bring the same energy to promoting the great things to do in Milwaukee during the summer,” says Josh Albrecht, VISIT Milwaukee’s Vice President of Marketing & Communications. “Whether that is volleyball at the beach, coffee on a patio, boating on the river or a trip to a museum, we know there is plenty to get excited for.”
Fresh off a new contract, Bobby is ready to hype the city for at least the next four years. Learn more information about the partnership here
