Likely NBA Final, Warriors/Bucks Notes

May 18, 2019

There is a ways to go, however, with original NBA “semis”series, big favorites, Golden State (Warriors) and Milwaukee (Bucks) ahead (2-0), it is very likely to be a Warriors/Bucks NBA final, in 2019.

The franchises at one time together in the NBA West, (the Warriors, originally in Philadelphia, were once in the NBA East, but left to the west 7 seasons before the Bucks entered the league in 1968-1969) met in three consecutive NBA quarterfinal rounds, from (1971-1973).

The first two series were 5 game(s) Bucks’ victories (one can only hope for that money losing number of games for Disney, if and likely when, the teams clash in the ’19 final.) In 1973 the Warriors won the quarterfinal series in 6 games.

Milwaukee, an incredible (10-1) (10-1), the latter vs the spread, in these ‘offs, won their lone title going (12-2) in the ’71 playoffs. Both the Bucks and Warriors lost semis to the Lakers, after their series victories vs the other, in ’72 and ’73.

The only other post-season meeting between the Milwaukee and Oakland areas was in the second Super Bowl, that after the 1967 season and more specifically the Green Bay Packers classic “Ice Bowl” win vs the Dallas Cowboys.

In that second Super Bowl, the Milwaukee area Packers ripped the Oakland Raiders (33-14), in what was Vince Lombardi’s last game as Packers’ head coach.

Eventually, ’twas Milwaukee/Green Bay vs Oakland in the final.
