The Milwaukee Bucks Are In The Semis And Other Notes

May 9, 2019

The top ranked Milwaukee Bucks led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, have advanced to their first NBA semi-final since 2001 and just their second in 33 (their greatest, and if you add it all up, college and pro, I believe basketball’s greatest player, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, nee Lew Alcindor wore that number) seasons, ousting the Boston Celtics in 5 games, in their NBA “quarter.”

The number 33 is also very much applicable to the Celtics and not just regarding their great player, Larry Bird, who also wore that number.

Since Bird led to the Celtics to an incredible 16th title in the NBA’s 40th season in 1986, they have won just one NBA crown in the 33 subsequent seasons.

That title was in 2008 and the final series MVP was Paul Pierce. This year, Pierce was outrageously wrong, saying on television, the “series is over” after Boston’s game 1 victory.

Milwaukee, a truly good team story, won the next four games, all of them easily.
