****, I'm gonna miss PJ, aka the last Milwaukee Buck to touch the basketball in regulation of the first Finals clinching game in my lifetime.

Go get you some South Beach rum ham, bro. :clap:

My lady got me this for my b-day back in August, thought I'd share it. Handmade, hand-painted, pretty badass.

Tomorrow will mark exactly 3 months. It is still surreal. Maybe not as surreal as it was that night, but, on the verge of a new season, still surreal.

Miami – Close out the series on the road.
Brooklyn – Down 0-2. Close out the series on the road.
Atlanta – Down 0-1. Close out the series on the road.
Phoenix – Down 0-2. Broke the pattern – Bucks in 6.

So many memories stand out. (sorry for the long post)


Brooklyn

“Middleton spinning ….. Hits!”

“And that’ll do it, the Bucks beat the Nets”


Atlanta

“And Someone’s Down. It’s Giannis!”

“Blocked by Lopez!”

“Middleton for 3? Yes!”

“Here’s Lopez…..”

“And the Milwaukee Bucks are one win away from the NBA Finals!”

“Khris Middleton is putting on a SHOW!”


Phoenix

“Giannis Antetokounmpo, after Missing the Last Two Games, is In The Lineup!”

“We got better tonight. I can feel it. We can feel it. We’re gonna go home. We’ll be better at home”

“Holiday behind the back, Middleton back to Holiday, inside Portis, for the Slam!”

Bobby! Bobby!

“Bang! What a Bucks’ Barrage!”

“They can’t stop Giannis. Back to Back 40 Point Finals Games!”

“Booker throws it up for Ayton, …. Shot Blocked by Antetokounmpo! What a Block by Giannis!”

“High Drama in Milwaukee in Game 4!”

“Antetokounmpo with the Steal. He Soars and Scores!”

“Pat Connaughton gives Milwaukee the Lead, and This Place is Delirious!”

“How many times in critical games has Khris Middleton come through for the Bucks?”

“This Building is Shaking!”

“Holiday comes up with it. Gives it up to Middleton who puts it Up and In!”

“Khris Middleton leading Milwaukee with 40 Points!”

“This series is such a Roller Coaster Ride”

“The Suns have thrown a Haymaker here in the 1st quarter, it’s 37-21!”

“Holiday? ….. Got It! Jrue Holiday, Lighting It Up in the first half!”

“And the Bucks down 16 after one, put up 43 in the 2nd and lead it 64-61 here on the road!”

“It’s Good! More Middleton Magic!”

“Paul get’s inside. It’s good! It’s a 1 point game!”

“Knocked Away and Stolen by Holiday! ....... Giannis Slammed It! How About That!”

“Giannis on the Alley-Oop. What a Turn Around!”

“Bridges driving, Get Out of There by Giannis! What a Start!”

“The Spin Move, the Finish, and Giannis Does it Again!”

“The Prowess of Giannis Antetokounmpo on Full Display!”

“Brook Lopez with Authority!”

“They Are All On Their Feet at Fiserv Forum!”

“Giannis with 45!”

“It’s Bedlam in Bucksland Right Now!”

“Giannis, with One of the Most Iconic Performances in the Storied History of the NBA Finals!”

“Puts Up the One Hander. It’s Good! Does it Again!”

“50 Points!”

“And the Suns…….. are Not Gonna Foul!”

“Wisconsin, We’ve Got a Room at the Top of the World Tonight!”

“Bucks in 6!”

“Khris, …. we did it, huh?!”

In the stands that night I was so filled with nervous energy it was hard to let the gravity of it all hit me. I was happy, but more so just kind of relieved it was over.

Tonight in the stands, my guess is it’ll hit me hard and I’ll get some dust in my eyes.

Herb Kohl getting a ring is the highlight of this ring ceremony for me. He was a meddler, but man he loves this team.

HKPackFan wrote:Loving reliving this championship run:
Heat game 1. Giannis played the 4th quarter with a dinged arm. Khris the shot was incredible but I almost forgot Jrue had an incredible block of butler with 0.5 seconds left. I've also enjoyed seeing Giannis and Jrue tag team butler into being just a speed bump. (Giannis is called for a 10 second violation late in the game)

Heat game 2. First quarter. Heat 20pts vs Forbes 14pts. he's also playing great defense, game of his life he can tell his grandchildren about. The deer district crowd keeps growing. It was full of tables in game one, the tables are starting to disappear with a couple thousand fans behind the table section.

Other notables: ariza's most notable move in the playoffs was trying to do a push up on Giannis's dick. Dragic with a bitch move trying to trip Khris. Giannis showing us he could have played soccer.

Heat game 3: boring slug fest. No team in the first half could hit a shot beyond 10 feet. Yet the bucks are built with the ability to win ugly. Just attack the paint attack the boards and make life miserable for the other team on defense. Amazing ability to completely out rebound the heat. Midway thru the 3rd teams remember how to shoot but it's too late. Butler continues to be smothered, no complimentary players help out much. Bucks control comfortably throughout even without shooting great. Heat are dead in the water when they can't hit their 3s,bucks keep trucking.

In the 4th quarter, heat fans start counting during Giannis's free throw routine. IT STARTED HERE! :evil: Jim and MJ joke about it a bit, oh little did we know what a big deal this was going to turn into.

Heat game 4: you know that pain when the bucks are farting around and just look meh? Well the first half is meh, minus Bryn Forbes with 13 in the second quarter. Heat intensity is higher but they can't pull too far ahead. Bucks crawl back into it in the third and take over eventually. Dragic fake wrestling on Khris is embarrassing. Bryn was worth it just with him eliminating the heat. Giannis first triple double in playoffs, 3rd in bucks history. 15 beautiful assists. The 4th quarter is MUST RE- WATCH. OMG IT'S BEAUTIFUL!

Crowd chants "overrated!" when Middleton goes to the line in the second. Maybe only DD is chanting along at home. Oh miami, how Khris is going to prove you and the rest of the world wrong.

Only 2 and1’s so far, for such a great post. What a shame... Come on, Bucks fans, leave your holes and give credit where credit is due.
It's an amazing post and I hope he does this for every series. I don't know how to And 1 on my phone. :)

ETA: I see you did BKN, looking forward to the rest!

Anyone know if Suki got a ring? I'd bloody hope so.

Like if Craig gets one and she doesn't I'd be quite annoyed.

I don't think guys like Craig and DJW got one. I read or saw something somewhere and it was stated specifically that only players a part of the playoff run will get rings.
F*** Marc Davis, f*** Tim Donaghy and f*** David Stern as a staff, record label and as a mothaf**kin crew......and if you wanna be down with Stern then F*** YOU TOO!!! Stu Jackson f*** you too.....all you mothaf**kas F*** YOU TOO!!!!
