    Wes Unseld Jr. didn’t get the Wizards job because of who his dad is. He grinded for 24 years

    The birth rate in Milwaukee is going way up in nine months.

    Giannis, my gawd he's a beast. Haven't seen anything like that since Shaq.

    Giannis dominated in an all time great performance. He even made his free throws. Jeff Teague wins a championship, beating Chris Paul’s team.

    The last and only person with 50 in a close out game was Bob Pettit in 1958.

    That performance was Bench like. It was George Brett like. It was Bart Starr like. Life long Bucks fan, lifelong RedLegs fan. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

    How many shovels of dirt got tossed on that team during these playoffs? I'll admit, I thought they were done after that 2nd Nets game. They were like a boxer who starts slow each fight and then shifts into killer mode.

    It was clearly over when Giannis went down in Game 4 against the Hawks. heck, I thought his career was over.

    It’s crazy how fast narratives change. Giannis just had one of the greatest Finals performances ever and will now always be considerate among the best to play the game. But if Kevin Durants toe was an inch shorter, none of this happens.

    Great point that cannot be stressed enough.

    Games of inches.

    Mamadi Diakite is the first player to win a high school championship, an NCAA championship, a G-League championship, and an NBA championship. And he didn't pick up a basketball until he was 14 years old. Cool story.

    Great story. Diakite was a great cheerleader for the Bucks.

    I seem to recall that Quinn Buckner is the only person who has ever won a high school championship (back to back Illinois division one state champions with Thornridge-lost one game in two years) an NCAA championship with Indiana (Last undefeated team)an NBA championship with the Celtics and played on an Olympic gold medal winning team. Also an all state high school football player. But when he played for the Bucks,they lost 52 times in 1976–77

    I wonder how James Hardin is feeling about his "no skill" & and "only dinks" comment from a few years about Giannis?

    Off-season plans will be fun to watch.

    What does every team biggest off-season need?
    Atlanta will have to make a decision on John Collins.
    Boston needs to address their backcourt depth.
    I'm guessing the Nets will search for a (cheap) center.
    Charlotte will also need a center. Badly.
    Chicago needs to decide if it's tanking or trying, then deal with Lauri Markkanen.
    Cleveland needs wings-- and to deal Sexton for something helpful.
    Dallas needs a big and some defense.
    Denver needs a 3-and-D wing and a PG.
    Detroit needs to find minutes for all its young charges.
    Golden State needs a third offensive option.
    Houston needs talent of all sorts and to buy out John Wall.
    Indiana needs to decide if it can thrive with Sabonis and Turner AND LeVert, Lamb, and Warren. And Brogdon. And Holiday. And McBuckets. Basically, pick a starting five.
    Stop me if you've heard this before: the Clippers need a PG. (And Kawhi to get healthy.)
    The Lakers need talent that doesn't hate to play with each other. And to move on from Kyle Kuzma. And Dennis Schroder.
    Memphis needs shooting and good health.
    Miami needs a second superstar scorer. (Oladipo doesn't appear to be it.)
    Milwaukee needs to run them back, but with a SG this time.
    Minnesota needs a defensive-minded PF and health. (This team is, IMO, a sleeper.)
    New Orleans need defense-first backcourt guys and for their front office to stay out of the team's business.
    The Knicks needs a second scorer.
    OKC needs a wing or three.
    Orlando needs shooting. And scoring. And a star.
    Philly needs to figure out how to deal Simmons for shooting and ball handling while not sacrificing too much defensively.
    Phoenix needs a backup PG and for Chris Paul to buy back in and not age.
    Portland needs Lillard to be happy and for other teams to give up great players for nothing.
    Sacramento needs to get rid of Bagley and Hield and find talent on the wings. Plus center. Sigh.
    San Antonio needs shooters and frontcourt help.
    Toronto needs frontcourt help.
    Utah needs athletic depth.
    Washington needs defense. Anywhere, basically.
